About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. AbeBooks has millions of books. We've listed similar copies below.

Description:

Book is square and tight, pages white, with only minor toeing-in of board corners. In what appear to be glossy, illustrated, laminated boards (black skeleton silhouetted "behind bars" on front). This book was "libraried" in the modern scan-the-barcode era and thus doesn't have and apparently never had any glued-in attachments, manilla envelopes, etc. Stamped to top and bottom page-edges "MID-CONTINENT PUBLIC LIBRARY"; no cross-outs. FFE bears a similar stamp with Independence, Missouri address, neat author-name label, and a second stamp "THIS BOOK WITHDRAWN FROM THE RECORDS OF . . ." etc. Bar code taped to rear board, could probably be safely removed. Another scannable bar code stuck to copyright page. Copyright page reads "First edition in the United States of America." Title page reads "PUBLISHED BY THE CRIME CLUB BY / DOUBLEDAY & COMPANY, INC. / GARDEN CITY, NEW YORK / 1987." Small stuck-on gold seal inside rear board reads "HOUCHEN BINDERY LTD., UTICA/OMAHA, NE." We have compared this copy to another first American edition, which has a traditional dust jacket. This copy is one-half inch shorter than a first-edition-in-dust-jacket (which measures 8 1/2 inches.) It appears this book was sent to the Houchen Bindery in Nebraska, where the bottom half inch of boards and text block were whacked off. This left sufficient extra dust jacket that the jacket (flaps removed) could be coated with a layer of plastic, wrapped around the book, tucked tightly around the now-shorter boards, and then held in place with new endpapers. That's why "CRIME CLUB" now appears at very bottom of spine, instead of 3/8-inch from bottom, and "A CRIME CLUB SELECTION" (in red) at very bottom of front board, instead of 1/2-inch higher as on a normal copy. Given that virtually the entire press run apparently went to libraries, about as nice a copy as seems likely to turn up, if you don't mind the DJ having been apparently (albeit professionally) turned into a laminated layer no longer removable from the underlying black boards. NOT the author's first novel (try to find a Scottish first of the previous year's "The Flood") but first in the 17-and-counting "Inspector Rebus" series for which he is best known. 183 pp. Reduced from $60.

Book Description Published for the Crime Club by Doubleday & Company, Inc., Garden City, N.Y., 1987. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. "First edition in the United States of America." Manilla library pocket glued to FFE, and a bar code tag glued to copyright page. Top and bottom pages also bear library rubber stampings, though those are blessedly faint. Outer edges of DJ flaps are noticeably thin where they were laboriously freed from being glued to insides of boards. Roughness of pastedowns in vertical strips reveals where this gluing once held sway. DJ not price clipped; original $12.95 price showing. DJ spine orange title lettering considerably sun-faded. Spine has a noticeable 3/16ths-inch lean. All that said, this copy is in better-than-usual condition for a library survivor; still tightly bound with virtually no wear to boards and with the white text block unmarked. Author's first "Rebus" novel, his second opus only to "The Flood," Polygon, 1986. Also listing a slightly smaller copy which was chopped and laminated. This one is full original size, with a nice dust jacket now protected in mylar. 182. pp. Reduced from $60. Seller Inventory # 001360
