The Wuggly Ump

by GOREY, Edward

Condition: See description

New York: Adama Books, 1986. Reprint. Oblong 12mo (13.5 x 15); yellow/illustrated paper-covered boards, no dustwrapper (as issued); [28pp]. Minor scuffs, bumps, and soiling; toning to front board; front pastedown and ffep indented from paper clip; Near Fine. The Wuggly Ump is a delightful creature who generally subsists on umbrellas and brass tacks, until he gets a craving for something more tender. Meanwhile, three good children spend their days nearby, weaving flower chains and eating plenty of wholesome foods. Eventually the two parties collide, and being a Gorey story, you may (or may not) be able to guess what happens next... A relatively early work from the iconic illustrator; originally published (w/ dustwrapper) by Lippincott in 1963, this is the somewhat scarce 1986 Adama Books reproduction.
