This is a wonderful collectible set of two like new hardcover books with dust jackets and enclosed in a box set. First Editions 1973 Farrar Straus & Giroux Publishing. Each hardcover is like new, crisp and clean inside, unmarked pages. Both hardcovers are neatly price clipped inside front dust jacket flap. Otherwise as new. Binding is tight and straight as new on each. Dust jacket for each is also like new with only a hint of shelf wear from display. The box slipcase is very good with only light shelf wear from display.
This wonderful collection is illustrated by Maurice Sendak. The Juniper Tree and Other Tales from Grimm is distinguished first by the selection of stories itself. Lore Segal and Maurice Sendak have jointly chosen 27 stories from the 210 that were in the complete collection and their contents page amounts to a fascinating critical statement. Along with Hansel and Gretel, and The Frog King, there are many stories readers may not recognize. Chief among those is the title story, a masterpiece that modern anxieties seem to have suppressed.
Sendak began considering this project in 1962, but it was 10 yrs before he started drawing. His picture for The Juniper Tree transcend everything he has done until now.
