Item Description: 1929. WIESE, Kurt (illustrator). WIESE, Kurt. KAROO THE KANGAROO. Illustrated by the author. NY: Coward-McCann Inc., 1929. Small quarto, green cloth stamped in black. First Edition. Wiese (1887-1974) was a prolific illustrator of children's books and received two Caldecott Honor Book Awards and a Newbery Award. He wrote and illustrated 20 of his own books of which "Karoo The Kangaroo" is his first, published shortly after he moved to the United States. He also illustrated another 300 books for other authors, including Felix Salten's 1929 "Bambi"- which was Wiese's first critical success. Born in Germany, Wiese lived and traveled in China where he was captured by the Japanese at the outbreak of World War I. He was turned over to the British and spent five years as a prisoner in Australia, where he became captivated with the native animal life and began his sketching again. Karoo is a kangaroo that learns about other Australian animals once he leaves his mother's pouch and was undoubtedly inspired by Wiese's time in Australia. Signed inscription by Wiese on the half-title page: "Cordially, Kurt Wiese. Jan, 1929." Many copies of this book ended up in libraries and signed ones are scarce! Very Good (little wear & soil covers; contents clean & tight). $250.00. Bookseller Inventory # 1502
