Previous owner's name front endpaper.Book has enchanting full and half page color illustrations throughout.A well-preserved copy of the scarce first edition of this beautiful work by the Petershams.Maud Fuller (1890-1971), fresh from Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Miska Petersham (1888-1960), a Hungarian immigrant of peasant extraction, met as young artists pursuing careers in a New York City advertising firm. It was after the birth of their son, Miki, that the couple began to create children’s books together, their first one being, in fact,Miki. They went on to perfect an efficient creation process, with Maud taking the role of writer and general layout designer, from which point Miska took over the illustrations. They have been likened to the d’Aulaires, not only in the proliferation of their works for children, but also in their robust, optimistic vision of Americana, which inspired and fills many of their books. One of these books,The Rooster Crows: A Book of American Rhymes and Jingleswon the Petershams the 1945 Caldecott medal.
