DWINDLING PARTY. [A Pop-Up Book by Random House]
New York Random House [1982]. First Edition, First Printing, Signed by Edward Gorey. Six double-page fully illustrated colour pop-up pages by Edward Gorey and engineered by Ib Penick. The large pop-up pages also include sliders, spinners, flaps and other smaller details. 4to, publisher’s original all-over pictorially designed glossy boards from Gorey’s artwork bound and designed to open flat, no dustjacket was issued. A very fine copy, internally near as new with all pop-ups and moving parts fine and working, the boards very fresh and solid and bright, no fading, with just a tiny bump to the upper corners. RARE FIRST EDITION SIGNED BY EDWARD GOREY AND A DELIGHTFULLY MACABRE POP-UP FROM THE MASTER OF THE GENRE. A strangely whimsical poem about a family’s wonders through Hickyacket Hall and the progressively perverse methods of mayhem that one by one dwindle down the party. No one other than Charles Addams has done a better job of bringing dark humor to a young audience than Edward Gorey. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
Bookseller: Buddenbrooks, Inc. [Newburyport, MA, U.S.A.]
