About this Item: HARPER & ROW Publishers, USA, 1962. Hardcover. Condition: Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Illustrated by Maurice Sendak (illustrator). Probably First Edition?. 4 Volumes in the set. IN the ORIGINAL Slipcase (box). The Slipcase is intact but with some wear - rubbing to the extremities and a crease line to the top and side. Each book is VG and measures 64mo - over 2 3/4" - 3 3/4" (9.5 cm x 6.5 cm) and the Slipcase is 7 cm x 10.3 cm x 4 cm. The books' bindings are salmon pink col'd cloth covered boards with dark line drawings of acorns and oak leaves on the front boards, and titled in dark burgundy (? Brown) to the spine. NO DUSTJACKETS to the books. There is a Lib of Congress (pre ISBN) number under the copyright lines (1962) which would indicate that it is a First Edition - certainly this set is pre 1968 - but I am unable to state this definitively. It's definitely very early and in all probability is a First. NO INSCRIPTIONS OR MARKS. Each individual book is illustrated throughout in varying colours of black/blue/yellow and green with a half title and frontispiece. The 4 Titles are : - 'One was Johnny'; 'Alligators All Around'; 'Chicken Soup with Rice'; and 'Pierre'. All these hardback books are in VG to Near Fine condition. The slipcase is a little edgeworn and creased, but is complete, without tears or splits, and all illustration to the box present. See Images; BOX = 7 cm x 10.3 cm x 4 cm. Seller Inventory # 114299

About this Item: New York: Harper & Row Publishers. 1962 copyright for Sendak. 1963 copyright for Knight., 1963. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. CHRISTMAS THEME: Slipcase shows some wear on edges, NO ISBN # on bottom or on copyright pages. Although the slipcase is Maurice Sendak's Nutshell Library, I found a copy of Hilary Knight's The Night Before Christmas inside it and eventually got it signed. All four books are the same small size approx. 3 x 4. The three unsigned Sendak copies, Pierre, One Was Johnny, Alligators All Around, are all bound in mauve-colored cloth boards with an illustration of oak leaves and acorns stamped in black on the front covers, and illustrated in color throughout; DJ's covered in mylar showing a little edgewear on top and bottom spine edges only. The SIGNED and DATED Hilary Knight copy has black and white illustrations and is nearly fine book covered in pink cloth plus DJ [1963] signed in red ink on free front: From Hilary Knight, 2004. It's a little oddball set but very charming. Not many of these books survived intact as children, the end customers, loved them to pieces. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 7583

About this Item: Harper & Row, Publishers, New York, 1962. First edition, later issue of this wonderfully illustrated little set of classics for children. 24mo, four volumes, original cloth, illstrated. Pierre is signed by Maurice Sendak on the title page. Each are fine in near fine dust jackets. The original slipcase is in very good condition. Uncommon signed. Each of these small books has a lesson to teach: Pierre is the cautionary tale of a little boy who says only "I don't care!" The others delightfully illustrate the alphabet, counting to ten and the months of the year. These books "show Sendak at the height of his powers as a comic illustrator" (Carpenter & Prichard, 476). Some of the characters, like Pierre and Johnny, later incorporated into the 1974 television special, Really Rosie, Starring the Nutshell Kids and then the 1981 Broadway production of Really Rosie, made their first appearance in these books.
