12mo. Original pictorial wrappers. Toned, wrappers quite clean.
Provenance: Jesse J. Alexander (bookplate).
FIRST EDITION, SIGNED & INSCRIBED WITH A DRAWING OF SNOOPY. An early sketch of Snoopy, apparently done in 1958 as evidenced by a clipping advertising a Schulz store appearance and by the drawing itself which depicts Snoopy with a long nose and sitting on all four legs. In 1958 Schulz had just begun to draw Snoopy walking on his hind legs; often he was depicted on all fours, as here.
