NY: Grosset & Dunlop. No Binding. Original dustjacket by commerical artist Irv Doctor, on light canvas paper backed in the approximate actual dimension of the dustjacket. Black ink and water color. Some archival tape repairs to the verso of the original art. Offered with three pristine, unused copies of the dustjacket itself plus a pasteup plus leftover pasteup pieces of a used one. Irv Docktor (1918 - 2008) was an American illustrator and educator best known for his work as a book and magazine illustrator in the 1950s and 1960s. His versatile work appeared in hundreds of books, but he was best known for hardcover dustjackets, like Patricia Highsmith's "Strangers on a Train" and five first editions of Robert Heinlein science fiction novels including "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" He also illustrated cover designs for Playbill. Docktor and his family lived in Fort Lee, NJ, where in 1957, he found a home in the woods, with an inspiring view of the Hudson River and NY skyline that he often sketched. Very Good. Item #012761
