Cecily G. and the 9 Monkeys (Signed and With an Original Drawing) SIGNED

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co., 1942. H.A. Rey. Cloth. INSCRIBED BY H.A. REY IN YEAR-OF-PUBLICATION on the front free endpaper AND, IN HIS HAND, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INSCRIPTION, HE'S DRAWN A PORTRAIT OF "CECILY G.", THE GIRAFFE. A solid copy to boot of the 1942 true 1st edition (with the matching "1942" date on both the title and copyrght pages). Tight and VG- in its light-brown pictorial cloth, with light staining along the front panel's upper tip, very mild scuffing to the rear panel and light creasing --and several small closed tears-- along the page edges. Small, clear tape evenly applied as well at the margins of 3 pages and light soiling to the rear endsheet. Tall quarto, wonderfully illustrated in rich color by the maestro H.A. Rey. A presentable, relatively well-preserved copy of a fragile title, very scarce as such, with the H.A. Rey inscription and original drawing of the book's namesake. Very Good -. Item #16214

Price: $2,500.00
