Nutshell Library by Maurice Sendak, 1st/1st, 1964
London: Collins, (1964). First edition. This 4-volume boxed set is very good++. The slipcase has lovely illustrations with wear to the edges and corners and some areas have faded. There is also a tear on the back of the slipcase that covers some of the illustration. The four books inside are all in a similar very good++ condition. They all have the dust wrapper with light browning but no foxing. One of the books has slight crumpling to the back panel and another has a drawing mark. The pages are clean without any chips. Overall, this 4-volume boxed set is in a very good++ condition. The set contains an alphabet book, a book of rhymes about each month, a counting book, and a cautionary tale all written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak.
