About this Item

Thomas Y. Crowell Company, New York, 1978. 148 pages. 8vo. 1st edition 1st printing. First Edition stated. SIGNED and INSCRIBED by Katherine Paterson directly to the title page. Katherine Paterson dated the inscription 4/22/78. This National Book Award winner of 1979 and runner-up for the 1979 Newbery Medal (losing to Ellen Raskin's classic The Westing Game) was published 3/28/78. 3 weeks after publication date, Katherine Paterson inscribed this copy as follows: For Carrie Kruce, with love from her mother and me, Katherine Paterson, 4/22/78. Paterson of course was no stranger to the Newbery Medal, as her Bridge to Terabithia took the Newbery Medal for 1978. Original DJ with $6.95 price intact on DJ flap. Corners are sharp. Pages are bright, clean and tight. Lightest, lightest fading at edge of cloth binding. Book shows the slightest lean (barely). DJ shows minor rubbing along edges. Book is VG++ in a VG to VG+ dj. Rarely is this copy discovered without a library binding or ex-library. Even more rare is a signed copy, and most rare would be a signed first printing (just 3 weeks after publication date!) An exceptionally rare, early signed copy of the award winning classic!. Bookseller Inventory # 000769
