About This Item

New York: Coward-McCann, 1928. Limited First Edition: number 137 of 250 copies SIGNED by Wanda Gag on the colophon page.  No dust jacket, as issued.  Lacking both the slipcase and the signed woodcut by Gag.  Wanda Gag (1893-1946) was an award-winning artist whose work can be found in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museum of Modern Art, British Museum, and Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Millions of Cats, her first children's book, was a Newbery Honor book, while 2 later books were Caldecott Honor books.  The book is in very good+ condition: clean and tight, with some dulling of the color on the covers; 2 superficial scratches on the front cover; some very minor edgewear; relatively minor soiling on the rear cover.  Much nicer than it sounds.. SIGNED. First Edition. Hardcover. Collectible-Very Good+. Illus. by Wanda Gag. Oblong 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall. Book.


Once upon a time there was an old man and an old woman who were very lonely. They decided to get a cat, but when the old man went out searching, he found not one cat, but millions and billions and trillions of cats! Unable to decide which one would be the best pet, he brought them all home. How the old couple came to have just one cat to call their own is a classic tale that has been loved for generations. Winner of a Newbery Honor, this collector's edition—featuring a heavy interior stock, spot gloss and embossing on the cover, and a thread-sewn binding—will bring this beloved tale to a whole new generation of readers.
