About this Item

17-1/2 x 11 inches, covers of brown butcher paper. Proofs of the complete issue. For most pages this contains one or two versions of each page, the first proof, often with corrections, on proofing paper, pulled prior to lockup, and a foundry proof on slick paper printed from the locked-up form before plating. The full-page advertisements have only the foundry proof page. The lead in White's "Notes and Comment" section for this issue was his obituary for Franklin Delano Roosevelt who had died on April 12. This article has two or three versions of each page, each with pencil corrections or revisions by White. The issue also includes John Cheever's story "Town House," pieces by Edmund Wilson and others. Included with the foundry book are copies of the regular issue and the Armed Services edition of the issue. A unique production relic, in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 29310
