Description:
Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1991. Fine in near fine dust jacket.. Signed proof of this quite creepy story of a ship's crew turned into monkeys after removing a mysterious stone from an island. Chris Van Allsburg's rich illustrations are easy to get lost in. He began his career as a sculptor, graduating with an MFA from RISD; his wife Lisa and illustrator David Macaulay urged him to try his hand at children's book illustration in 1979, and a Caldecott Honor, National Book Award, and numerous other accolades later, his books are a beloved part of many childhood (and adult) shelves. This proof copy of THE WRETCHED STONE, signed by Van Allsburg, illustrates one of the final steps before the official publication of a picture book. 11.25'' x 9''. Original unclipped ($17.95) color pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated in color. [32] pages in two loose gatherings. Title page signed by Van Allsburg, dated 1991. Jacket with a touch of edgewear.

Description:
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1990. First edition. Very good plus.. Signed galley proof of Van Allsburg's dystopian children's book, with ephemeral one-sheet synopsis - in an early version of the dust jacket that was changed prior to publication. This fantastic early proof of Chris Van Allsburg's JUST A DREAM demonstrates that just because parts of a book have been printed, they aren't set in stone. In the final version of DREAM, little Walter and his bed are perched in a tree instead of awash in a sea of trash, as in the proof jacket. And clearly, additional editorial work was going on behind the scenes as this proof was released - it only contains seven of the illustrations that would appear in the final publication, with an ephemeral plot summary in place of pages containing text. A fascinating example of a midpoint on the way to a finished book. 11.25'' x 8.5''. Original self-wrappers, saddle-stapled. Original unclipped (no price) color pictorial dust jacket. [16] pages.

Description:
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1986. Overall very good plus.. Publisher's proof copy, with printed illustrations facing pages with tipped-in text captions sourced from internal galleys, and with another set of corrected galleys. This proof matches the majority of the final work except for the last spread, which includes annotations in pencil to correct the text that was revised after its production. "Every autumn since the stranger's visit, an odd thing happens" is changed to "Every autumn since the stranger's visit, the same thing happens." It is a subtle stylistic shift that speaks to Van Allsburg's careful building of an atmosphere that allows symbolic inference over explicit interpretation. In addition, the farewell message in the final sentence has been changed from "See you next year!" to "See you next Fall." An illuminating glimpse of both Van Allsburg's writing process and the multi-stage refinement involved in publishing a picture book. 9.25'' x 11.''. Original stapled printed sheets… Read More
