About This Item

[New York]: Columbia Broadcasting System, 1946. Wrapper lightly chipped, boards worn at ends of spine. Oblong 4to. Original pictorial boards; original plain cream dust wrapper. FIRST EDITION, with CBS's promotional card laid-in. The two "glimps" - singular creatures whose varying perceptions (glimpses...) of their worlds provide them their name - each have a television set. One has color, the other has black-and-white. It is not hard to imagine which has the better life, and which set CBS was trying to advocate in this scarce promotional work by Bemelmans.
