Maurice Sendak Autographed First Edition of “Brundibar.”

Lot 691. Maurice Sendak Autographed First Edition of “Brundibar.” Sendak gained wide recognition for his illustrations in his 1963 children’s book “Where the Wild Things Are.” In a survey almost 50 years later, readers of the “School Library Journal” identified it as their favorite picture book. Sendak received numerous awards for his books. In 1970, he was presented the third biennial Hans Christian Anderson Award for illustration; the award recognized his “lasting contribution to children’s literature.” In 2013, he was inducted into the New York Writers Hall of Fame. Tony Kushner wrote the text and Sendak created the illustrations for “Brundibar,” which is based upon a 1938 Czech opera and tells the story of little Aninku and her brother Pepicek, who must deal with the bully Brundibar, a hurdy-gurdy grinder, to help their sick mother. In 2003, the Chicago Opera Theatre produced Sendak and Kushner's adaptation of “Brundibar.” The “Brundibar” book is a 2003 stated first edition hardback, nm-m book and dust jacket. Sendak’s autograph on a blank page facing the first title page is mint 9. The award-winning author and artist passed away in 2012. Winning Bid $45.
