About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for THE ART OF THE SELF: Essays a propos STEPS by KOSINSKI, Jerzy.

Description:

Narrow 8vo. Original printed wraps. Near fine with mild toning at edges. Inscribed and SIGNED by author Kosinski to noted Native American author Duane Niatum: "For Duane Niatum / in appreciation / Jerzy Kosinski / March 1975." One of Kosinski's more fascinating books, one we've never seen unsigned, but which exists in numerous "states." Kosinski "revised" many elements of this book over the next ten years: having stamps made to amend list of titles published and the acknowledgements, a sticker to correct his publisher's address, xeroxing a current biography and taping it over the printed bio. page, making holographic changes, etc. In effect, this book reflects in it bibliographic variety the very "art of the self" Kosinski embodied in his life: a constant work in progress, and given the controversies surrounding him, one sprinkled liberally with a dose of fiction. The current copy reflects an unusual amount of "revisings" by Kosinski: revision stamps (with additional hand corrections), publisher sticker, and crossing out of biography (in same pen as inscription) with xeroxed version taped over.
