Winner of the 'Nestlé Smarties Book Prize'
Rosen, Michael & Oxenbury, Helen (Illus.) ~ We’re Going On A Bear Hunt : Signed By The Author
Walker Books, London : 1989
The First UK printing published by Walker Books, London in 1989. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with just a hint of toning to the page edges and a little pushing at the lower spine tip. The binding remains tight. The WRAPPER is clipped and is in Very Good+ condition. It is the correct first issue. A small closed tear to the upper rear edge. Some spotting to the wrapper with light toning to the spine - see images. This wrapper is notoriously fragile and this is by far, one of the most complete that we have encountered. It is protected in a loose transparent cover. The book has been signed (without dedication) by the author to the dedication/printing details page. A ticket for the signing event accompanies this title as provenance. Profusely illustrated throughout by Helen Oxenbury and the basis for both TV and theatre adaptations. The book was the winner of the 'Nestlé Smarties Book Prize' in 1989. A very elusive title with such attributes.
CONDITION: Near Fine
JACKET: Very Good+
