The Nutshell Library (4 Boxed Miniature Volumes). Maurice Sendak.

The Nutshell Library (4 Boxed Miniature Volumes)

New York: Harper & Row, 1962. Maurice Sendak. Cloth. The uncommon 1962 true 1st ed. of Maurice Sendak's beloved and tiny boxed 4 vol. set. All 4 vols. in a uniform pink cloth and including the off-white band on the bottom of the dustjacket of "Chicken Soup with Rice". Most important of all, though, this set has the remains of the elusive circular gold sticker ($2.95) required to conclusively determine a 1st ed. All 4 vols are Near Fine in crisp, Near Fine dustjackets. The pictorial box is VG+ to Near Fine as well, having held up nicely over the years. The individual titles that make up the set are: "Alligators All Around: An Alphabet"; "One Was Johnny: A Counting Book"; "Chicken Soup with Rice: A Book of Months"; and "Pierre: A Cautionary Tale -- In Five Chapters and a Prologue" Near Fine / Near Fine.
