CARLE, Eric.


Item Number: 137517

Cleveland and New York: The World Publishing Company, 1968.

First edition of this classic work, the artists’ first solely authored and original picture book. Thin quarto, original cloth, illustrated endpapers. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author in the year of publication opposite the title page, “Christmas 1968 For the Zwicker Family with my very best wishes Eric Carle.” Fine in a very good price-clipped dust jacket. First editions are rare, especially signed.

1,2,3 To the Zoo features a band of animals traveling to the zoo by train. Children can count out the members of each group as they pass by, car by car. Carle's colorful trademark collage art makes this wordless counting book a fun and educational way to put children on the right track to numerical comprehension. Without any words at all, Carle is able to relate a masterful tale that captures the essences of zoology and mathematics in such a way where even a child can grasp the importance of these disciplines.
