Star Wars A Pop-Up Book

By Barlowe, Wayne Douglas (Illustrator)

Near Fine book with a couple of tiny chips at corners, slightly bowed boards due to nature of this type book, no dust jacket as issued. Paper engineering by Ib Penick – all pop ups and push-pull tabs completely intact and working. An unusual book issued after the original Star Wars was released in 1977, and a nice link to the now-playing Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The price-clipped dust jacket is Very Good with light edge and corner wear, mild color loss at corners, spine ends, and front flap fold, slight rubbing and touch of sun toning to spine. Below the gift notation Maclean has inscribed the book: To Kenneth Powell, (some fishing stories) who should be quite a fisherman himself, sharing birthdays with the best fisherman I know. Then signed below Norman Maclean. Maclean signed very few books personally, although there was a Univ. of Chicago signed limited in 1983 and a Pennyroyal Press signed limited in 1989.
