Item #18837 The Tin Fiddle. Edward Tripp, Maurice Sendak.

The Tin Fiddle SIGNED

New York: Oxford University Press, 1954. Maurice Sendak. Cloth. INSCRIBED BY MAURICE SENDAK (at a later date) on the verso of the front free endpaper. A solid, appealing copy to boot of the 1954 1st edition of this, one of Maurice Sendak's scarcest titles. Clean and VG+ (front inner hinge tender but still perfectly sturdy, tiny former owner name at the top of the front free endpaper) in a crisp, price-intact ($2.00), Good+ dustjacket, with chipping along the spine (including about 2" of loss all told at the crown and the base) and several closed tears at the panel edges. 3 of the tears run a few inches in length, the others are very small and negligible. And yet, in spite of the issues to the very fragile dustjacket, it remains attractive and presentable. Oblong octavo, wonderfully illustrated throughout --with clear signs of things to come-- by the maestro Maurice Sendak. Very Good + / Good +. Item #18837

Price: $1,250.00
