New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1975. First edition. Hardcover. First printing. A terrific anthology that collects 20 of Gorey's previous books into one volume. Among the books collected are: "The Beastly Baby," "The Pious Infant," "The Gilded Bat," "The Iron Tonic," "The Osbick Bird," "The Lavender Leotard," "The Salt Herring," "Leaves from a Mislaid Album," and twelve others. A tight very good plus copy with some slight bumping to the corners and spine ends in an about very good price clipped dust jacket that has a large chip from the base of the spine as well as some tears and small chips to the corners and edges. Still, a very presentable copy.
