Inscribed first printing, elusive with original sketch of a hand signing in the same line-drawing style of the book's illustrations.
Very good plus in like jacket.
WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS
Along with FREE TO BE YOU AND ME, a fixture of just about every Gen X childhood, Silverstein's classic book of verse dispensed with idealized views of childhood, substituting a sly and dark sensibility equal parts Dr. Seuss and Roald Dahl. Rare with an original drawing.
New York: Harper and Row, (1974). 8.75'' x 6.75''. Original full olive cloth, facsimile of Silverstein's signature stamped in brown, spine lettered in black. In original unclipped ($7.95) white jacket with drawings by Silverstein, designed by Len Willis. Illustrated throughout by Silverstein with black-and-white line drawings. 166,  pages. Housed in custom half black goatskin clamshell box. Inscribed by Silverstein, with a sketch of a hand holding a pen writing his signature, across front endpapers. Just a touch of fading around cloth edges, boards slightly bowed. Dust jacket toned. Presents as near fine.
