Ox-Cart Man
New York: Viking Press, 1979. Stated First Edition. Hardcover. Oblong 4to. Unpaginated (40pp). Tan half-cloth over illustrated green paper-covered boards in color illustrated dust jacket. Golden blind-stamped Caldecott (paper) medal pasted on dj. The work won the 1980 Caldecott Medal & Honor Books award. Delightful tale of the days and weeks, the months, and new changing seasons in the life of one New Englander and his family. He travels over hills, through breathtaking valleys, past farms and villages. At the buzzing Portsmouth Market he sells his goods - even his beloved oxen. Donald Hall's gentle story evokes a simple time in American life that is irrevocably past. The color reproductions of drawings by Barbara Cooney capture the serenity and sense of peace of early 19th century New England. Some age wear and creasing along parts of dj edges. Six small closed tears on top- and bottom edge on inside of dj repaired with tape. Small abrasion near lower edge on rear of dj. Tight copy with dust jacket in overall good, book in near fine condition.
