The Doubtful Guest
Doubleday & Company, Garden City, NY 1957 - SIGNED. Oblong octavo [22 cm x 15 cm] in matte pictorial boards. Toning and light soiling to jacket, 1.5" tear to jacket front cover at foot near spine, a few 1/8" tears along top edge, small dampstain to jacket rear cover, loss along jacket hinges; boards are crisp and unworn, with light toning to extremities and light smudging to rear board; interior is clean and bright. Signed by Gorey on title page. Edward Gorey's third book, and one of his most recognizable. The titular Guest is a large birdlike creature in tennis-shoes who implacably insinuates himself into the daily, dreary life of a wealthy Edwardian family.
