Item Description: Harper & Row. New York, 1963. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Poor. 1st Edition. Hardcover with DJ. Blue cloth spine, pictorial boards. White pictorial DJ faded at the edges and with a couple short closed (1" or so) tears. It has protected the book well, though; the book is clean and square. Front cover of DJ has the Caldecott sticker affixed (not printed on the DJ). Inside front DJ flap is price-clipped. Code of 40-80. 1163 present on the bottom of the flap. Title page has the LOC number. Rear DJ flap says "Winner of the 1964 Caldecott Award" at the top and "Best Illustrated Children's Book of 1963" at the bottom. This is not the entire and complete first edition (which makes no mention of the Caldecott Award), but it is a very early printing. After the book won the Caldecott, all the copies still in stores were recalled & new DJ's were printed, mentioning the award. This copy does have the skewed colors associated with the first printing -- just not the right DJ. The book is, however, in quite good condition. Please email for photos or with questions.

Occasional spotting to pages, small pencil notes to two pages, which list the names of the Wild Things, light rubbing to corners, in the dust jacket with toning to white areas, light spotting along rear panel edges, short closed tears to front edges, lower corner to front flap clipped, 3.50 price still intact at upper portion. A very good copy. Illustrated by Sendak. First edition, first printing, first issue. There seem to be multiple issues of the first printing of this elusive and important book. Variations in price occur throughout the later states but have no bearing on the status of the true first issue. Primacy is established through the text of the blurb which, as in the present copy, makes no mention of the Caldecott Award bestowed upon the book on publication. The winning of such a prestigious prize compelled the publishers to recall the entire edition and change the text on the dust wrapper to include the achievement. Copies therefore with the original blurb are rare and are indubitably the earliest. Bookseller Inventory # 96725

The winner of the 1964 Caldecott Medal, Where the Wild Things Are is Maurice Sendak's iconic children's book about a young boy who is sent to bed without supper and imagines himself in a fantasy jungle world where he is the king of the ferocious "wild things." A very personal book, the story is based on Sendak's childhood; the idea of "wild things" came from the Yiddish term "vilde chaya" or "wild animal" that was popular with his mother, the wild things themselves were based on his aunts and uncles, and the experience of being sent to bed without supper for being a "vilde chaya" was one that Sendak knew well. Although the book was initially criticized for its dark undertones, Sendak's keen ability to connect with the emotions and dreams experienced by children worldwide, paired with his exquisite illustrations, make this book a timeless classic.
