A classic and much loved book in the Moomin series, here not only inscribed by Tove Jansson (rare in itself) but also featuring a one of a kind original drawing of the character Sniff under the inscription. A truly remarkable example.

First Swedish edition (published in the same year in Swedish by Gebers in Stockholm and Schildts in Helsinki). Octavo. Original cream cloth-backed pictorial boards, lettered blue to spine; with a total of 93 delightful line drawings, including many full-page, depicting Moomins in their world. Inscribed by the author alongside a one of a kind drawing depicting the character of Sniff. A remarkably fine example, both externally and internally, with none of the usual discolouration to the spine. The only defect to mention is one small blemish to the front board. Internally fine.A fine example.

Published by Gebers, Stockholm, 1962.
