The Missing Piece - 1st Edition/1st Printing

Silverstein, Shel

New York: Harper & Row, Publishers. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 1976. First Edition; First Printing; Signed by Author. Hardcover. 0060256710 . An attractive copy in Near Fine condition in alike, price-clipped dustjacket with small closed tears. This copy is signed by author Shel Silverstein on the half-title page. Minor rubbing to boards; "It was missing a piece. And it was not happy." So begins this fable of quest and fulfillment with its sparse line illustrations to supplement the text. Singing nonsense rhymes it travels far and wide searching for its missing piece. Sadly, when it finds its missing piece and can roll very fast it discovers that life at a fast pace does not have time for pleasurable things like talking with friends, entertaining a butterfly, and singing a happy song. In fact, when it was complete it could not sing at all, so it set the piece down gently and slowly rolled away .

In a Near Fine dust jacket with minimal wear. "Few storytellers have immunized us against our adult dullness, generation after generation, more potently than Shel Silverstein...In 1976, The missing Piece was published -- a minimalist, maximally wonderful allegory at the heart of which is the emboldening message that true love doesn't complete us, even though at first it might appear to, but it lets us grow and helps us become more fully ourselves" (Popova). Charmingly illustrated, with an important lesson for all readers. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
