(Black Cat Press)

Judge Not a Book by Its Cover: A Few Proverbs Illustrated in the Spirit of Fun.

Forgue, Norman W (illus.)

Chicago: Black Cat Press, 1963. (59)pp. One of 400 copies. This is one of the smallest and most sought after Black Cat Press books. A delightful, light-hearted ABC of proverbs with illustrations facing each letter. The introduction by Norman W. Forgue details the events surrounding the first edition of 1938, when water damage in his office ruined most of the copies. After 25 years, Forgue rests assured that Averill would exclaim a similar reaction to this later edition: "I couldn't have done better." With marbled endpapers. Very fine in mustard yellow leather. A.e.g. (1 3/8 by 1 1/8; 35x29mm). Item #30727

Price: $250.00
