DWINDLING PARTY. [A Pop-Up Book by Random House]

(New York: Random House, [1982]).

A DELIGHTFULLY MACABRE POP-UP FROM THE MASTER OF THE GENRE. A strangely whimsical poem about a family’s wonders through Hickyacket Hall and the progressively perverse methods of mayhem that one by one dwindle down the party. No one other than Charles Addams has done a better job of bringing dark humor to a young audience than Edward Gorey. Item #22418

First edition, First printing. Six double-page fully illustrated colour pop-up pages by Edward Gorey and engineered by Ib Penick. The large pop-up pages also include sliders, spinners, flaps and other smaller details. 4to, publisher’s original all-over pictorially designed glossy boards from Gorey’s artwork bound and designed to open flat, no dustjacket was issued. A very fine copy, internally near as new with all pop-ups and moving parts fine and working, the boards very fresh and solid and bright, no fading, with just a tiny bump to the lower corners.
