Inscribed "To Harvey Yalan Son of Wise Guy Alexander Yalan My Good Friends on 8th St. Brooklyn- Special regards to your father- your son still to be tested Winston O Winston Link 11-19-83" on the half-title page. An oblong softcover, with a bit of minor rippling on the top left side of the cover, about 2" in from the spine and about 3" down from top edge. A thin patchy stretch 3/8" wide of either white paint or whiteout laterally across bottom edge of cover, extending about 6" from spine. Probably can be cleaned off with the proper know how. Minor creases and minor shelf wear to cover. Pages all clean and bright. Contains the 7" 33rpm record in rear pocket. Included is a packet of NY Times articles on Link (including those on Link's wife stealing his prints), and two photocopies of articles mailed by Link (in an OWL envelope), including the Wall Street Journal article from Jan. 13 1986. That photocopy measures 17" x 15", unusually large for that period, and is inscribed at the bottom "Mr. Yalan- Thanks for your interest. O Winston Link 3.26.86". A unique package from this American Original. Bookseller Inventory # 000191
