About This Item

San Diego, CA.: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Publishers. Near Fine. 1991. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover in dust jacket. This book is hard-bound in brown paper covered boards, with a black cloth spine with copper colored stamping, in a very nice dust jacket with a small ding to the upper joint. The binding is solid. The contents are bright and clean with nice illustrations. This book is signed/inscribed by the illustrator Barry Moser on the title-page. - From the collection of Cuthbert Christian Thambimuttu (1945-2019) of Columbus, Ohio - known to many of his bookseller, author, and illustrator friends as "Tubby." He was persistent in the pursuit of autographed books by the writers and artists he admired, including Gorey, Sendak, Heaney, Byatt, Morrison, Updike and many more. Joseph Heller once wrote to Tubby in response to one more "please sign and return" request: "This is turning out to be a hell of a lot of work!" All signed books unconditionally guaranteed to be authentic. Many of the books are inscribed to both Cuthbert and his great friend of more than two decades Antonia Gale Moss. ; Signed by Illustrator .

Synopsis

Virginia Hamilton has once again brought her well-loved trickster, the invisible Jahdu, to life in this updated collection of eleven previously published, and four newly created, stories. Jahdu is based on a centuries-old folklore tradition, yet the tales themselves are original and drawn from Hamilton’s imagination. “The language is vigorous and masterfully honed, while the character of lively, powerful, self-defining Jahdu has appeal.”-- Kirkus Reviews
