Uri Shulevitz. Fine in VG+ 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 front panel of the dust jacket shows the Caldecott emblem, bestowed upon this title in 1969 (the year after initial publication); however, there is no mention on the front jacket flap of the award (no header, no reviewers' blurbs, only the publisher's descriptive text), the flap shows a $4.95 price (consistent with the first issue), and the spine panel is blue, so the jacket may well be first issue with the Caldecott medal applied later. Dust jacket is lightly rubbed at corners, with a bit more pronounced rubbing and minor loss at both spine extremities, and a tiny nick of loss along bottom rear edge; there is a small "c" in ink next to the price on the front flap. One edge of the Caldecott medal edge is slightly creased, and the white portions of the design are slightly soiled. Signed by illustrator on half-title, with accompanying inscription "To Kay / with great pleasure! ", dated Apr. (? ) '88. Thus, a scarce signed first edition in a probable first-issue jacket, signed about 20 years after initial publication.
