This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip Trager, Ralph Lemon, and Andrew Szegedy-Maszak.

Please note: Many copies available online have serious flaws. A scarce signed copy thus. Some of the finest American writers and artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy.
