Unpaginated, [70]pp. Original illustrated dust-jacket over quarter tan cloth and illustrated paper covered boards, with red lettering to spine. Price unclipped ($1). Illustrated endpapers. Fly leaf inscribed by Munro Leaf to Helen Hefling: "For Helen Hefling with all best wishes of (here is an 3/4 x 3/4" original sketch of Ferdinand's head) Ferdinand and Munro Leaf" (signed). Illustrated title. Originally published in 1936, the "Story of Ferdinand" is the best known work written by American author Munro Leaf and illustrated by Robert Lawson. The children's book tells the story of a bull who would rather smell flowers than fight in bullfights. He sits in the middle of the bull ring failing to take heed of any of the provocations of the matador and others to fight. This gem of children's literature is splendidly illustrated throughout with 34 full-page illustrations by Robert Lawson. Dust-jacket partly rubbed and slightly chipped along edges. 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, 1936. Boards. Condition: Very Good. Munro Leaf (illustrator). A wonderful copy of the 1936 true 1st edition, INSCRIBED IN YEAR-OF-PUBLICATION BY ROBERT LAWSON AND ALSO INSCRIBED BY MUNRO LEAF. FURTHERMORE, THIS COPY INCLUDES A WARM, HANDWRITTEN, FULL-PAGE LETTER FROM ROBERT LAWSON ON HIS PERSONAL STATIONARY (ADDRESSED TO THE SAME FAMILY THE BOOK IS INSCRIBED TO). A solid copy to boot of the September 1936 1st edition. Tight and VG in its famous decorative pink boards, with light offsetting along the front panel's top-edge and very light foxing to a handful of pages. Lacking the original dustjacket. One of the great highspots of 20th century children's literature and a career-defining achievement for both Lawson's tender narration and Leaf's incomparable illustrations. Seller Inventory # 17095
