SENDAK,MAURICE. WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. NY: Harper Row, 1963. Oblong 4to, cloth backed pictorial boards, Fine very lightly soiled and slightly frayed price clipped dw. 1st edition of one of the most important and most elusive modern picture books and winner of the Caldecott Award. First edition dust wrappers are distinctive not for the issue price ($3.50) but for the content of the information on the flaps. A first edition has no mention of this title having won the Caldecott Award amongst other changes from the first (this is confirmed by the fact that it is not uncommon to find a dust wrapper with the correct $3.50 issue price but with the later wrapper blurbs).
