Uri Shulevitz. Fine in Near Fine jacket. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall. Signed by Illustrator Burgundy cloth, stamped in red on front panel, lettered in gold foil. Oblong format. As issued. Unpaginated, fully illus. in color, illus. endpapers. This copy, like all we have ever encountered, does not show any of the typical FSG designations for a first edition and may thus be an exception to the publisher's general indications; the copyright page provides a pictorial copyright of 1968 and original publication data for the 1st (1916) edition. The dust jacket is a later state, not fully determined, as it does not fully conform to the points of any of the first three states: the front panel of the dust jacket shows the Caldecott emblem, bestowed upon this title in 1969 (the year after initial publication), and the front jacket flap mentions the Caldecott award in its header, followed by blurbs from the NYT Book Review and Library Journal, and shows a $6.95 price (as opposed to the $4.95 of the first state); however, the spine panel is blue, seemingly indicative of either first or second state. Dust jacket shows slightly rubbed edges and the slightest of soiling to the white portions of both panels but is very nearly as issued. Signed by illustrator on lower title page, without unaccompanying inscription. A virtually unimprovable printing of a scarce Caldecott winner, graced by a highly coveted "generic" signature.
