Robert Graves' The Big Green Book proved so popular that it appeared three times (to date). First as a 4to. with illustrated boards in 1962, then in a smaller format in 1968, and finally restored to the original format with cloth backed boards and dust jacket in 1985. All of these benefitted from remarkable black and white illustrations by Maurice Sendak. Offered here is the final iteration, a 1985 first edition (with complete number line) in Very Fine condition in a Very Fine dust jacket. The icing on the cake is an original drawing opposite the title page of one of the characters, signed and dated by Sendak in the year of publication. Amazing!
