A HOLE IS TO DIG: A First Book of First Definitions.
[New York]: Harper & Brothers, (1952). First edition, later issue/printing? A nice copy of Sendak's fourth book. This has the black spine and "Grr-r-r" on page 23, both later per Hanrahan A4. But still has the $1.50 price. Fine in dust jacket with the barest wear and a small sticker shadow on back panel.
