SENDAK, Maurice. Outside Over There. (New York: Harper & Row, 1981). Oblong quarto, original red cloth, original dust jacket.

First edition of Sendak's award-winning book, a "mysterious and richly allusive fantasy" (New York Times), signed on the pictorial half title by him.

In this beautifully illustrated tale about a young girl's quest to save her baby sister from goblins, "Sendak is again dealing with the complex emotional life of children in the present, as they try to cope with the mysteries of feeling through their fantasies" (Silvey, 586). The New York Times praised the book, along with Sendak's classics In the Night Kitchen and Where the Wild Things Are, as one of "the great anchors of American experience." Among other accolades, Outside Over There was named a 1982 Caldecott Honor Book. Hanrahan A110. Connolly, 266.

A fine signed copy.
