The 1974 re-issue, printed from new engravings made from the original art. Oblong quarto; pictorial paper-covered boards with gray cloth backstrip; dustjacket; [40pp]; illus. Front board slightly yawning, else fresh and Fine. Dustjacket is price-clipped, with a hint of sunning to spine and a trivial sticker residue to lower front flap; Caldecott medal applied to front panel; a bright, very Near Fine example.
A stunning copy of this beloved children's classic, a viable alternative to the considerably pricier First Printing. Basis for the well-received 2009 film directed by Spike Jonze, with a screenplay written by Dave Eggers.
