The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Carle, Eric

New York: Philomel. Hardback. Good. Hardcover, lacking dustjacket. Signed without personalization by Eric Carle on the title page a long with a cute illustration. No indication of printing, which for this publisher is usually indicative of a first (Thus, as World Publishing originally launced this title in 1969). A good copy with general wear to the edges and corners and a minor lift to the front board. Light soiling to the white boards. Interior is unmarked other than the author's autograph and sketch and a previous owner's name neatly to the top corner of the rear pastedown. Pages have some thumbing and crinkling to the bottom edges from young hands turning the pages - not extreme. Overall, a good copy of this children's classic, nicely signed by the author.
