About This Item

San Diego, New York, London: Harcourt Brace, 1991. First edition. Fine in fine dust jacket.. Inscribed first printing of a retelling of the story of Daedalus and Icarus's ill-fated flight. Jane Yolen is a literary all-rounder. From Nebula-winning SF short stories to historical fiction to cookbooks to poetry, Yolen has found success and accolades. Picture books are no exception: among her numerous works in the genre are two Caldecott Medal winners, beautiful collaborations with some of the most pre-eminent illustrators, and beloved bedtime story staples. In 2021, at age 83, she published her 400th book, and showed no signs of slowing down - "[m]y eye is on 500!" she gleefully reported, discussing her ongoing projects (Scalzi). 11'' x 8.5''. Original cloth-backed boards. Original unclipped ($15.95) color pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated in color. [32] pages. Inscribed by Yolen to title page "For Bill - / with Thanks!" and dated 1991. Sharp and bright.
