Binding slightly rubbed along edges. DJ in overall good-, binding in good+, interior in very good condition. Publication history: "The book's first run by Viking Press in 1936 sold 14,000 copies at $1 each. The following year saw sales increase to 68,000 and by 1938, the book was selling at 3,000 per week. That year, it outsold "Gone with the Wind" to become the number one best seller in the United States. As of 2002 the book has never been out of print. The book has been translated into more than sixty languages. In 1962, a Latin translation, "Ferdinandus Taurus," was published by David McKay Publications in New York and by Hamish Hamilton in London. A first-edition copy sold at auction for $16,500 in 2014." (For more information see: Anita Silvey's "100 Best Books for Children," Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2005, pp. 24-25; and "Ferdinand the Bull's 50th Anniversary," in the Washington Post dated 11/9/1986).

About this Item: The Viking Press, New York, 1963. Early printing of Munro Leaf's beloved children's classic. Octavo, original half tan cloth, illustrated endpapers. Presentation copy, lengthily inscribed by the author on the half-title page with three drawings, "For Ruth with all best wishes of Ferdinand and Muro Leaf." Inscription opposite the author's inscription, near fine in a good price-clipped dust jacket. Illustrated by Robert Lawson. "This is perhaps one of the finest 20th-century examples of the inspired wedding of a text and illustrations to make a children s book that as a whole is even greater than the sum of its parts-which are in themselves very fine indeed. The simple, delightful Leaf story about a Spanish bull who prefers the fragrance of flowers to the roar of the bull-ring is lovingly illustrated by Robert Lawson. The overworked word classic is well deserved here. Children have adored The Story of Ferdinand ever since the book was published" (Early Children s Books and Their Illustrations). Translated into over 60 languages, Munro Leaf's classic became a number one bestseller in 1938 and has never gone out of print since. Despite its beloved place in children's literature, the book was banned in many countries including Spain and Nazi Germany who denounced it as a pacifist work and 'democratic propaganda.' Following the 1945 defeat of Germany during the Second World War, 30,000 copies were published to be given to the children of Germany in an effort to encourage peace. The book was adapted by Walt Disney into the classic short animated film Ferdinand the Bull in 1938, and more recently into the feature-length computer animated film, Ferdinand, produced by 20th Century Fox Animation.
