Swados, Elizabeth. INSIDE OUT: A MUSICAL ADVENTURE. Boston, MA: Little, Brown & Company, 1990. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 120 pages. Fine/Fine. Signed.

The American composer's book on music. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Elizabeth Swados' "Inside Out: A Musical Adventure". Whimsicality as musicality. "A story detailing adventures among musical instruments on the order of The Phantom Tollbooth that is made up of unbridled whimsy, an incomprehensible plot, and page after page of unrestrained verse" (Library Journal). An absolute "must-have" title for Elizabeth Swados collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Elizabeth Swados. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American composers of the 20th century. A fine copy. . ISBN 0316824666. $30.00
