The Story of Ferdinand (Inscribed by Both Robert Lawson and Munro Leaf --and Including a Full-Page Letter from Robert Lawson) SIGNED

New York: The Viking Press, 1936. Munro Leaf. Boards. A wonderful copy of the 1936 true 1st edition, INSCRIBED IN YEAR-OF-PUBLICATION BY ROBERT LAWSON AND ALSO INSCRIBED BY MUNRO LEAF. FURTHERMORE, THIS COPY INCLUDES A WARM, HANDWRITTEN, FULL-PAGE LETTER FROM ROBERT LAWSON ON HIS PERSONAL STATIONARY (ADDRESSED TO THE SAME FAMILY THE BOOK IS INSCRIBED TO). A solid copy to boot of the September 1936 1st edition. Tight and VG in its famous decorative pink boards, with light offsetting along the front panel's top-edge and very light foxing to a handful of pages. Lacking the original dustjacket. One of the great highspots of 20th century children's literature and a career-defining achievement for both Lawson's tender narration and Leaf's incomparable illustrations. Very Good. Item #17095
