THE NEEDLE IN THE HAYSTACK. By John Matheson. Pictures By E.Parin D'Aulaire. New York: William Morrow, (1930). Square 4to. Pictorial boards with cloth spine. Illustrated endpapers printed in red. Illustrated with EIGHT LITHOGRAPH COLOR PLATES (printed in Germany) by EDGAR PARIN D'AULAIRE (1898-1986). Also illustrated with numerous black and white drawings including a small self-portrait of the artist on the "List of Illustrations" page (see enlargement 4 - lower right). A rare title published before D'aulaire and his wife began issuing books together as a team in 1931. Edge wear to covers and, it should be noted, that there is a recurring light (not too obvious!) water stain to the lower corner of most pages (see enlargement 11). Printed in the U.S.A. by Quinn & Boden Company with the color plates printed in Germany. Rare.
