About this Item: WORLD PUBLISHING COMPANY, 1969. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First Edition, First Printing: SIGNED WITH A DRAWING-FIRST edition, FIRST Printing rebound in stunning dark leaf-green leather with playful gilt titles and a colorful leather embossed caterpillar inching his way across the front title. Includes a stunning large original signed drawing rendered in pen of the ¿Butterfly¿ signed by ¿Eric Carle¿. The First printing was printed in Japan by World Publishing and includes the full number line down to the 1 (the later printings were printed in the United States, and do not have the complete number line down to 1). The first printing is impossible to locate signed by Eric Carle, and more impossible to locate signed with a large drawing! The Very Hungry Caterpillar was Carle¿s break through/landmark book and one of the most read children¿s books of all time. A newly rebound beautiful signed example of this signed title. The book having been rebound is in perfect condition and is not fragile. Stunning elegant end papers perfectly showcasing the interior of the book. We have not seen a signed First printing with an original drawing by Eric Carle appear on the market in the last decade. The book was spectacularly bound in deep green leather with vibrant playful gilt titles and an adorable leather caterpillar inching his way along the front. The internal pages have lightly scattered handling marks and/or faint pale stains (please see images). A most unique, impossible to locate signed FIRST printing book in a spectacular one of a kind hand crafted leather binding. Highly collectible signed with the original Eric Carle ink sketch. **ABOUT ERIC CARLE ART: Unlike many artists and illustrators, Eric Carle did not dedicate or sell his art, with the exception of his few dedicated pieces going to a close personal friend, Bill Holloran (who was a worldwide educational consultant on children¿s literature). Other than these pieces, the balance of his personal collection were pledged to The Eric Carle Museum Of Picture Book Art. As such, his original artwork in any form is extremely scarce and only one gallery currently even sells any works of Carle¿s. Simple line drawings, such as the one shown in the listing typically sell for $3800 and up unframed, with his more detailed art selling for $25,000 and up. See the Michelson Galleries for additional information on Eric Carle and his art. A wonderful classic children¿s book in handsome collectible condition, presenting very well with unique Eric Carle illustrations and a stunning piece of original art. Please see our Abe store for other rare children's books and original illustration artwork. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Signed by Author(s). Seller Inventory # 001183

About this Item: 0, 0. No Binding. Condition: Near Fine. ERIC CARLE (illustrator). 1st Edition. BLUE FELT TIP ON PALE BLUE PAPER STOCK, FRAMED TO A SIZE OF 18.5¿ X 16¿ AN ORIGINAL FELT TIP DRAWING OF A LION WITH A FLOWING MANE THE ART IS IN FINE CONDITION, NEWLY MATTED, FRAMED AND GLAZED TO A FINISHED SIZE OF: 18.5¿ x 16¿ An extremely scarce original felt tip drawing of a large detailed lion with a full large signature by Eric Carle to the lower left corner. Rendered in blue felt tip on pale pink paper, the art is boldly signed by Eric Carle along the lower left corner of the art. A stunning piece. Eric Carle virtually never created art that was not in drawings within a book unless it was designed as the final art for a published page in his books (of which very few are ever available for sale and when one shows up they typically are offered for over $30,000). This scarce, simple large piece was created by Eric Carle for a group of school children who won a nationwide contest to integrate the Eric Carle drawings and books into a quilt. This piece is in the iconic Eric Carle style, with a very large bold full signature. A stunning, more detailed artistic rendering of a lion with a flowing mane. The piece really can fit in anywhere someone wants serenity as the art brings the viewer back to their childhood. A very scarce and lovely piece. Newly matted, framed and glazed using a modern white frame, UV glass and 100% archival materials. PROVENANCE: The art was created directly by Eric Carle with the following amazing heartwarming provenance which will accompany the artwork: ¿When my son was in the 2nd grade there was an Eric Carle contest that I believe was nationwide The children had to design and construct a fabric, vertical type wall hanging/banner, there was a size (can¿t remember) incorporation 6 of Eric Carles¿s books. the children had to choose the books, create and construct the design (sew all piece in place, glueing, etc) an adult was permitted to sew the sections together, the project took about 3 months to complete, some of the parents made a quilt-like frame holder to put the large piece of fabric in and the children sewed (reinforced) the pieces on to the fabric, they first glued them in place. they sewed the quilt by some kids under the frame reaching the needle as it was pushed through by a classmate and then returned it by pushing it back up, It was quite the project, the class even took a trip to, I think Boston to see the other banners. Most did not follow the rules (many were totally made by the adults). nonetheless, our class won. Eric came to the school, and then traveled the world for abt. 3 yrs w/the banner, it was even displayed in Children¿s Museums across the USA and Japan. then our school framed it under glass and mounted it in the front hall w/the picture I sent you. and that was a very long time ago.¿ Unlike many artists and illustrators, Eric Carle did not dedicate or sell his art, with the exception of his few dedicated pieces going to a close personal friend, Bill Holloran. Other than these pieces, the balance of his personal collection were pledged to The Eric Carle Museum Of Picture Book Art. As such, his original artwork in any form is extremely scarce and only one gallery currently even sells any works of Carle¿s. Simple line drawings, such as the one shown in the listing typically sell for $3800, with his more detailed art selling for $25,000 and up.
