The Very Hungry Caterpillar (the True 1st - Eric Carle - 1969. 
New York: The World Publishing Company, 1969. Hardcover. Very Good +. Eric Carle. INSCRIBED BY ERIC CARLE IN 1970 AND INCLUDING 2 ORIGINAL DRAWINGS ("THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR" HIMSELF AND A SMILING QUARTER MOON). A very solid copy to boot of the June 1969 1st edition of this children's classic. Clean and VG+ in its pictorial laminate boards, with very light bumping to the front lower tip and at the spine crown. Just a touch of light spotting or soiling to several of the pages as well. Otherwise though, clean as could be, with no writing or markings of any kind internally. Oblong quarto, wonderfully illustrated thruout by the maestro Eric Carle. Lacking the dustjacket.
