[Children's & Illustrated] Sendak, Maurice
Pictures by Maurice Sendak

(New York): Harper & Row Publishers, (1971). First and limited edition, #98/500 numbered copies. Elephant folio. With a printed foreword (signed by Sendak, although not called for). Illustrated with 20 plates: a signed print of "Jennie, the Sealyham terrier, who posed for the heroine of Higglety Pigglety Pop!," as called for; 18 plates (all signed by Sendak, not called for); one unsigned plate. Plate sizes vary; loose as issued, in nine original large paper folders. Original blue cloth and patterned board clamshell box, printed cover label, front panel of box separated where glue has dried; in original cardboard mailing box. Hanrahan A78

A fine and limited release of prints representing some of Sendak's most beloved works, with all but one signed by him at the time of its publication at the request of the original owner. We have never heard of any set with any of the other plates signed, much less 18 of them.
