About this Item: New York : Harper and Row, 1964, Clean and Unmarked Text, 1964. HardBack Pictorial Binding. Condition: Very Good for Age. Dust Jacket Condition: Mylar Protected. Fully Illustrated (illustrator). First Edition / Early Reprint. Quality Hardback : hard cover edition in Very Good condition, some slight wear to edges, as normal for age of book; and in very good reprinted dust jacket with some minor egdewear, mylar protected, the portrait on the back of dj is a waist up photo of Silverstein with curly hair and full beard. First free end paper has a small notation in the upper right corner, minimal. A good book to enjoy and keep on hand. Or would make a great GIFT IDEA for the fan / reader in your life. Editorial Reviews : To say that this particular apple tree is a 'giving tree' is an understatement. In Shel Silverstein's popular tale of few words and simple line drawings, a tree starts out as a leafy playground, shade provider, and apple bearer for a rambunctious little boy. Making the boy happy makes the tree happy, but with time it becomes more challenging for the generous tree to meet his needs. When he asks for money, she suggests that he sell her apples. When he asks for a house, she offers her branches for lumber. When the boy is old, too old and sad to play in the tree, he asks the tree for a boat. She suggests that he cut her down to a stump so he can craft a boat out of her trunk. He unthinkingly does it. At this point in the story, the double-page spread shows a pathetic solitary stump, poignantly cut down to the heart the boy once carved into the tree as a child that said 'M.E. + T.' 'And then the tree was happy. but not really.' When there's nothing left of her, the boy returns again as an old man, needing a quiet place to sit and rest. The stump offers up her services, and he sits on it. "And the tree was happy." While the message of this book is unclear (Take and take and take? Give and give and give? Complete self-sacrifice is good? Complete self-sacrifice is infinitely sad?), Silverstein has perhaps deliberately left the book open to interpretation. All ages / Karin Snelson ;; Book Description 'Once there was a tree.and she loved a little boy.' So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein. Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk.and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave and gave. This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation. Shel Silverstein has created a moving parable for readers of all ages that offers an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.

About this Item: Moore, Wilstach, Keys, 1855. Cloth. Condition: Fair. No Jacket. Presumed First Edition. Fair copy of this lovely antique volume. Ligth brown boards with gilt decoration and blindstamping, showing a good amount of wear: dampstaining, soiling, fraying, cloth peeling back on bottom front. Though cracked at the hinge, the binding is still quite secure. Front free endpaper with some pencillings, tear out of top of rear free endpaper (where old ink notations had evidently been). Interior appears clean, though with foxing throughout. 328 pages, plus ads. B/w illustrations, and plates with tissue-guards. A solid reading copy of this 19th century gardening treasure.

Previous owner name and date, 1976. A good book to enjoy and keep on hand. Or would make a great GIFT IDEA for the fan / reader in your life. Editorial Reviews : To say that this particular apple tree is a 'giving tree' is an understatement. In Shel Silverstein's popular tale of few words and simple line drawings, a tree starts out as a leafy playground, shade provider, and apple bearer for a rambunctious little boy. Making the boy happy makes the tree happy, but with time it becomes more challenging for the generous tree to meet his needs. When he asks for money, she suggests that he sell her apples. When he asks for a house, she offers her branches for lumber. When the boy is old, too old and sad to play in the tree, he asks the tree for a boat. She suggests that he cut her down to a stump so he can craft a boat out of her trunk. He unthinkingly does it. At this point in the story, the double-page spread shows a pathetic solitary stump, poignantly cut down to the heart the boy once carved into the tree as a child that said 'M.E. + T.' 'And then the tree was happy. but not really.' When there's nothing left of her, the boy returns again as an old man, needing a quiet place to sit and rest. The stump offers up her services, and he sits on it. "And the tree was happy." While the message of this book is unclear (Take and take and take? Give and give and give? Complete self-sacrifice is good? Complete self-sacrifice is infinitely sad?), Silverstein has perhaps deliberately left the book open to interpretation. All ages / Karin Snelson ;; Book Description 'Once there was a tree.and she loved a little boy.' So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein. Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk.and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave and gave. This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation. Shel Silverstein has created a moving parable for readers of all ages that offers an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return. Ages 10+ Size: POPULAR TITLE OF INTEREST. A: Children's Reading Book. Seller Inventory # 5028422-884
