The Comet and You - E. C. Krupp, illustrated by Robin Rector Krupp (signed, 1985)
 
E. C. Krupp (illustrated by Robin Rector Krupp), "The Comet and You" (New York, Macmillan Publishing Company / London, Collier Macmillan Publishers, 1985; ISBN 0-02-751250-9). Hardback (matt black boards with black cloth spine, silver comet motif to front, silver title to spine) with original illustrated dustwrapper, 48pp, measuring approximately 26.3 x 21 x 1.3cm (10.35 x 8.25 x 0.5in). An appealing children's astronomy book, published in anticipation of the return of Halley's Comet in 1986, in which the author and illustrator "tell us why it's worth the wait. Combining solid facts with imaginative comparisons and stunning artwork, the Krupps expertly consider all aspects of the comet - its composition, orbit, and its place in the solar system and in history." This copy is signed by both author and illustrator, with delightful dedications to the original owner (Caroline M. White), in silver ink to the front flyleaf.
