Beautiful association copy of the limited 25th Anniversary edition, presented by Sendak to his dear friend James Marshall, with the special card containing an original signed pen-and-ink drawing of Max parading as a Wild Thing and an additional inscription to Marshall.
Inscribed first edition, later state, of the commercial and critical success that established Sendak's talent as an illustrator and Krauss's reputation for capturing child-like lyricism – an especially nice copy inscribed by Krauss.
By Herman Melville, edited by Hershel Parker, illustrated by Maurice Sendak
Signed Kraken Edition of Melville's psychological epic, heavily redacted and reconstructed by editor Herschel Parker to approximate its original 1852 form, spectacularly illustrated by longtime Melville admirer Sendak, and signed by both editor and illustrator.
Inscribed first US edition (and first English-language edition) of Sendak's illustrated picture book of monsters, originally created as a 1971 animated short for Sesame Street but deemed too scary for repeated showings.
