New York, U.S.A.: Epstein & Carroll, 1961. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). First Edition. 1961 Epstein & Carroll FIRST EDITION ( distributed by Random House) **SIGNED** directly on the title page by both JUSTER & FEIFFER. A solid copy in VG+/G condition.. The deep blue boards with white lettering and illustrations have the merest of wear at the corners and spine ends. Inside the book there is only a very faint inscription at the top of the map page. The unclipped DJ shows a price of $ 3.95 crossed out and penned $ 3.19. I think this is a second state DJ with 5 brief reviews on the rear cover. There is some loss of color along the right edge of the front, some dirt on the rear and chips of color loss but overall a GOOD bright DJ! EXCEEDNGLY RARE WITH BOTH SIGNATURES! **BONUS** Also receive the very charming First Edition of the Dot and the Line 1963 Random House in VG/VG condition..
