New York: Harlan Quist, 1976. First edition - A typically offbeat, but interesting Harlan Quist production- a warning from the whale about what man has done to the planet, other animals and to himself, beautifully illustrated by Jacques Rozier and Monique Gaudriault. Perhaps the final words are even more appropriate now than when they were written: "it may yet be written/Man has killed his planet,/Man has killed himself,/Man no longer exists." While children will enjoy the whimsical paintings, this is not a book just for children. Translated by Susan Singleton. Large square format. Unpaginated. ISBN: 0-8252-0142x.
Condition: Just about fine in glossy illustrated wrappers.
