Description:

Wide 8vo. Glossy pictorial paper over boards, pictorial dust jacket. xxxii. Numerous color illustrations. Near fine/near fine. A tight and nice first edition of this juvenile's guide to counting in Roman numerals, delightfully illustrated with Geisert's etchings. Boldly signed and inscribed by the author/illustrator in black ballpoint on the title page: "For Barbara & Walter / Arthur Geisert / v/iii/mcmxcvi." "Walter" is Walter F. Petersen (1920-2007), noted educator and long-time president of the University of Dubuque -- his ownership signature appears on the front flyleaf and circular blind-embossed ownership imprint on the title page. This fine copy is accompanied by an outstanding 13" X 27" color promotional broadside for this book in fine condition and also signed by Geisert in blue fineline at lower right. Bottom notes, "This 1997 calendar has been produced in celebration of Arthur Geisert's book." Each month is accompanied by one of Geisert's color etchings of pigs performing different activities appropriate to that month, and of course all months and days of the week are noted in Latin. Quite charming -- and uncommon. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: With a farm of pigs as his abacus, Arthur Geisert uses elements of a search and count game to bring Roman numerals to life in this unintimidating math-concept book. First, the seven Roman numerals are equated with the correct number of piglets. Then the reader may practice counting other items—hot-air balloons, gopher holes, and more—as the remarkable adventure unfolds. (And yes, there are one thousand pigs in the etching for M!)

About the Author: Arthur Geisert’s unique and exquisite etchings have been widely praised and exhibited at the Chicago Institute of Art, among other museums. His work is regularly selected for the Society of Illustrators’, annual Original Art exhibition, and his illustrations are now being collected by the Dubuque Museum of Art. He lives in a converted bank in Bernard, Iowa.
