BEMELMANS, Ludwig
MADELINE AND THE BAD HAT
The Viking Press (1956), New York. Folio (8-3/4"x 12-1/8") in decorated green cloth. Illustrated with color plates by the author. The First Limited AUTOGRAPH Edition, preceding the Trade Edition by 3 months. One of 985 copies, of which 885 were for sale. This is likely one of the 100 not for sale as it is not just SIGNED but also INSCRIBED, in this case "To Armand [Hammer and his wife] and Frances with true love/seldom extended by/Ludwig." Bemelmans has further enhanced this copy with an ORIGINAL DRAWING of Pepito the Bad Hat filling the page opposite the limitation page. With a booklet from Hammer Galleries advertising this autographed limited edition. Armand Hammer was an industrialist and philanthropist as well as an avid art collector. Slight fraying to the spine tips and one small spot at the center of the spine. Very Good, lacking the slipcase [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
