New York: Little, Brown & Co., 1975. First Edition. Square 8vo. White cloth with stamped illustration in pictorial dust jacket. Near fine in a very good DJ. INSCRIBED by Emberley on copyright page: "For Chris & Steve. Ed Emberly 1976" with drawing of two rats underneath, captioned "First Edition." Additionally includes, taped in, an original drawing on sketch paper by Emberley resembling the front cover of the book: a circle with its title and two figures underneath. Another gift inscription from an unknown person is on the opposite page, explaining: "We asked Ed to draw you a wedding / cake ñ the above illustration is special / as it was a reject illustration for the / jacket and it was part of the Lee Walp Family Juvenile Collection [at the University of Michigan]. To / our favorite Bostonian book friends. / Lee / [illegible]." Lastly, the book includes a postcard and bookmark, likely as issued. Jacket shows moderate edgewear and small chips. Pages clean and unmarred throughout. Unpaginated. 0316236101 (Item ID: 21729)

An interesting and unique copy of this lovely op-art children's book, telling the story of a "slightly inept wizard" who "casts his spells which are demonstrated to us through the techniques of optical art." An early work from the prolific children's book illustrator.
