1 Van Allsburg, Chris Ben's Dream
Boston Houghton Mifflin 1982 0-395-32084-4 / 9780395320846 First Edition, First Printing Cloth Van Allsburg, Chris 
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full green cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in gilt. Square quarto. Gold endpapers. 31pps., with illustrations by Allsburg. There is a faint soilmark -- as if of a watercolor -- in the margin of page 23, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No previous ownership markings. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, has light rubbing wear at the extremities -- though, with some slight chipping at the head of the spine. There is, also, a crease in the jacket's spine-panel. In short, a nice, collector's-quality copy of the author's uncommon third book.

"...Ben should be studying for a geography test on great monuments of the world, but the steady rhythm of the rain lulls him to sleep, and his dream begins. A flood of water shakes his house from its foundations and sets it adrift on an around-the-world course, carrying Ben past the incredible structures that were merely pictures on the pages of his book a moment earlier..."
