New York: Random House, 1982. First Edition. Hardcover. Oblong 8vo. Illustrated boards. Pop-up illustrations and flaps on every page, designed by Ib Penick. Unpaginated.
Very minor shelf wear. A thumb-sized dab of grey paint on cover. One tab on p. 5 is unglued, which does not affect the motion of of that pop-up element. All pop-ups otherwise in perfect condition. Signed by Gorey on p. 2, underneath the flap which serves as a title "page."
This is a signed first edition children's pop-up book written and illustrated by Edward Gorey. A very uncommon book in any condition, and a real treasure with Gorey's cheeky "hidden" signature. (Toledano A83a). Very good / very good. Item #1921
