1 Sendak, Maurice, illustrator; Krauss, Ruth, text A HOLE IS TO DIG: A First Book of First Definitions
[New York]: Harper & Brothers, (1952). First edition, later state. ''When you make your bed you get a star'' followed by ''Grr-r-r.'' Small square octavo. Hardcover. Very small, pale dampstain to one leaf, a hint of shelf-wear, a suggestion of age-toning: a very good plus copy in teal cloth-backed illustrated boards; in a price-clipped, age-darkened dust jacket with a light soiling, shallow nicking at the spine ends. 
Brilliant collaboration between Krauss and Sendak manages to be sweet without cloying, childlike without condescension, and smart without being smart-alecky. "Rugs are so dogs have napkins." "A hole is when you step in it you go down." Irresistible. 
Price: 150.00 USD
