HORRIBLE - An Account of the Sad Achievements of Progress, by Tomi Ungerer. Atheneum Publishers, New York. Copyright 1960, First Atheneum Edition.

Amusing and twisted illustrations and collages from the mind of this Mid-Century artist.

9 inch wide by 12 inch tall unpaginated hardback, missing dust jacket.

There are water stains and foxing around the edge of the first blank interior page, and last blank interior page. All other interior pages with illustrations are good with just a little yellowing from age around edges. Priced to compensate.
