"And now," cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!": Signed First Edition.
Where the Wild Things Are.
New York: Harper & Row, 1963. First edition. Oblong quarto. Signed by Maurice Sendak, in an older hand. Original cloth-backed pictorial paper boards show very light rubbing to the extremities in a near fine dust jacket which has some very minor restoration at extremities. This is the correct first state of the jacket with no mention of the Caldecott award, and a $3.50 price at top of front flap (lower corner of front flap clipped as in all copies). Housed in a custom quarter morocco clamshell box. A very nice copy.
