Descripción

This is a possibly unique mixed state set. Though originally sold as the trade edition, volume one is from the limited edition of 500 copies (number 361), and is signed by Segal and Sendak. Only volume one has top edge gilt. Dust jackets are from the trade edition and are priced $12.95/set. The slip case appears to be the trade edition slip case, but was issued without the paste down illustration. Thus, a publishing mystery.; Signed by Author and Illu. N° de ref. de la librería 1018

Sinopsis:

Back in Print!

Originally published as a two-volume set forty years ago, The Juniper Tree is distinguished first by the selection of stories. Lore Segal and Maurice Sendak jointly culled 27 from the 210 in the complete collection, and their contents page presents a fascinating critical statement. The translations are another distinguishing quality of the Segal/Sendak edition. Both translators have been painstakingly faithful to the German texts; they have not cut, "retold," or bowdlerized. In addition, Segal and Jarrell bring to their renderings of Grimm the grace and precision that are characteristic of their own original prose.
