New York: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 1980. SIGNED. Slim quarto [28 cm] Blue cloth over boards with a silver stamped title on the spine. The spine ends and corners of the covers are gently bumped, and the endpapers are very subtly darkened along the hinges. The dust jacket is lightly rubbed and chipped at the edges, and has a 1" closed tear in the top edge of the rear panel. There is a miniscule notation in pen by the price of $10.95 on the front inside flap. Signed by William Steig on the front free endpaper. Steig received the 1970 Caldecott Medal for Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. First edition. Very good.
