About this Item

First Printing. Signed and inscribed by the author directly to the first endpage. The book appears unread and is near fine in full blue cloth-covered boards, with just a minute trace of edge-toning, minor corner-tapping, and a very light discoloration to the front board. Binding square and tight. The dust jacket -- now protected by a removable Brodart archival cover -- is about near fine, with only some minor edgewear, causing mild wear to the spine-ends and several small edge tears, all professionally repaired. Clean and bright and completely intact, a very sharp collectible copy; from the esteemed modern first collection of Joy Kritzer. I ship all of my books bubble-wrapped in sturdy, very well-padded boxes, so they are guaranteed to arrive in the exact same condition as when they left. Please feel free to email with any questions/offers/trades and thank you for supporting small independent booksellers everywhere. Bookseller Inventory # 001993
