There are many different interpretations of the work from the points of view of religion, the environment, mother-child relationships, and friendships.Written and illustrated by Shel Silverstein, complete with illustrations throughout. In the original publisher's paper covered boards, in the original clipped dust wrapper. Externally, smart, with a touch of discolouration to the extremities. A few very light marks to the boards. Dust wrapper is a little edge worn with a few small closed tears. A touch of sunning and light marks to the wraps. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Prior owner's ink inscription to the half title. Near Fine

Description:
New York: Thomas Nelson, 1936. Fine in very good jacket.. First edition of Pène du Bois's notoriously scarce first book, about the ghost of a cow who is a little too sweet to scare people. Earliest version of this tale of the afterlife of the gentlest cow, sold to the publisher when du Bois was only 19 and a student at the Carnegie School of Technical Architecture; seizing the opportunity of this early success, he left school and never went back. In 1964, du Bois rewrote the text of this first edition and re-drew the illustrations for a new publication of the engagingly tragic tale; the exceedingly hard-to-find original shows starker scenes in black and white, with a haunting, floating Elisabeth the Cow the only subject in color: a fetching buttercup yellow. The Cow's trouble, familiar to many frustrated young children, lies in her inability to terrify a grown man; this is due to her gentle nature and frankly adorable physique, the former of which cannot be camouflaged by any fearful disguise.… Read More
