Below is a Maurice Sendak Where Wild Things Are 1st edition we have sold in the past:

1st Edition Printing of Where the Wild Things Are w DJ

First edition, first printing of “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak, complete with the uncommon first printing dust jacket. New York: Harper & Row, 1963. With all first printing points, including the lack of the Caldecott award sticker on the front of the dust jacket, which was added by Harper & Row after recalling the edition to reflect the achievement shortly after publication. Other first printing points include the $3.50 price on the front flap of the jacket, along with the code “40-80” and “1163” indicating the publishing date of November 1963, and the correct three paragraph blurb. The jacket’s back flap also has the correct three paragraph blurb. The book itself shows the Library of Congress number “63-21253” on the title page and has no ISBN number on the rear board. A very good copy, with colorful pictorial endpapers and illustrations throughout. A “Books Are Fun” sticker appears on front pastedown, and a child’s signature appears on half-title page. Small tear at bottom of front free endpaper, a few spots on rear endpapers, and light shelf wear. The front flap is clipped at the lower corner, typical of all copies, and light chipping to jacket, with a discreet closed tear at top center. Overall in very good condition. Sold for $3,300.
