Description:

Sixth Printing stated. Softcover in Fine - condition, whistle-clean inside and out, with only some minute edge-wear keeping it from being mint. There is a heavy paper dust jacket that is also Fine -, again with minute edge-wear. A gorgeous volume enhanced with the brilliant illustrations by the master, Maurice Sendak. "The tale of Nutcracker, written by E.T.A. Hoffmann in 1816, has fascinated and inspired artists, composers, and audiences for almost 200 years. It has retained its freshness because it appeals to the sense of wonder we all share. Maurice Sendak designed brilliant sets and costumes for the Pacific Northwest Ballet's Christmas production of Nutcracker and has created even more magnificent pictures especially for this book. He has joined with the eminent translator Ralph Manheim to produce this illustrated edition of Hoffmann's wonderful tale, destined to become a classic for all ages." -- from dj flap. *Collectible*.
