New York, NY.: Harper & Row, Publishers. Very Good. 1988. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover in dust jacket. This book is hard-bound in gray paper covered boards with a tan cloth spine, with gilt stamping to the upper cover and spine, in a very nice dust jacket. The covers show light edge-wear. The binding is solid. The contents are bright and clean with illustrations. From the collection of Cuthbert Christian Thambimuttu (1945-2019) of Columbus, Ohio - known to many of his bookseller, author, and illustrator friends as "Tubby." He was persistent in the pursuit of autographed books by the writers and artists he admired, including Gorey, Sendak, Heaney, Byatt, Morrison, Updike and many more. Joseph Heller once wrote to Tubby in response to one more "please sign and return" request: "This is turning out to be a hell of a lot of work!" All signed books unconditionally guaranteed to be authentic. Many of the books are inscribed to both Cuthbert and his great friend of more than two decades Antonia Gale Moss. . (Inventory #: 76562)
