Signed by Author Stated First Printing. SIGNED TWICE by the author on the title page with one in a slightly shaken hand. According to a laid in letter from the Old New York Book Shop (publisher of the 1988 edition of The Boo), this book was signed a second time by Conroy after he was diagnosed with writer's cramp, at Fripp Island, SC, on June 19, 1999. Conroy's first book, reflecting his experiences as a graduate of The Citadel military academy. This book is square and tight. The boards, spine, endpages and gilt/lettering are pristine. The pages are clean, having no markings or folds. The dustjacket is bright with mild rubbing, and light edge wear. There is a one inch tear at top joint. The original price is present but crossed out in blue ink. There is a faint circular stain, two inches in diameter, on the front wrapper. With illustrations and cartoon drawings. This copy was obtained from a nationally known aution house. Bookseller Inventory # 001045
