White, E.B.
CHARLOTTE'S WEB
Harper and Brothers, New York, 1952. First edition of the modern children's classic, an exploration of innocence and change, death and courage. One spider's efforts to save a pig from slaughter charmed audiences immediately upon publication, showing that "that human beings must always be on the watch for the coming of wonders." The book was published by Harper under the editorship of Ursula Nordstrom, who was the primary force in fashioning modern children's literature away from morality and education towards imagination and affection. 8'' x 5''. Original full tan cloth, front board and spine stamped in blue with illustrated title. Original unclipped pictorial dust jacket. Blue web-patterned endpapers. Illustrated with black-and-white line drawings by Garth Williams throughout. [8], 184 pages. Early bookshop ticket on front pastedown; ink ownership inscription on front free endpaper. Light soil to covers of book, some fraying of cloth at spine tips. Shallow chipping to jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [Silver Spring, MD, U.S.A.]
