First printing of the acclaimed YA novel, in which one brave horse connects the lives of people over the course of WWI — the basis for the award-winning play and the film of the same name by Steven Spielberg.
Very good plus.
"Take good care of him, please sir, till I find him again. There's not another horse like him, not in the whole world."
The ambitious stage adaptation of WAR HORSE — featuring a full-size articulated horse puppet — was a popular and critical success, earning awards on both sides of the Atlantic. Steven Spielberg translated that success to the big screen in 2011, netting a host of Oscar and BAFTA nominations. Most copies of the first edition of WAR HORSE were sent to libraries, where they were summarily rebound and/or read to pieces; non-ex-library copies, especially as clean as this one, rarely appear on the market.
First edition. Kingswood: Kaye & Ward, (1982). 8'' x 5''. Original glossy color pictorial boards. No dust jacket, as issued. 142 pages. Binding with some bumping to corners and spine ends, a bit of soil to rear. Shallow crease to corner of page 127/128. Clean.
