About this Item

Noted author's second novel, and his breakthrough novel, about Rabbit Angstrom, a one-time high school basketball star who on an impulse deserts his wife. A stated first edition book whithout any additional printings indicated, tightly bound, clean pages, no names or other markings. The covers show the age a bit of this more than half-century old book with a few smudges and light stains evident. The front board shows slight wear at the corners which are just starting to fray. The DJ is a new facsimile jacket that duplicates the first issue---sixteen lines of text on the front flap and a $4.00 price--in every way with the addition of a small box at the top of the front flap which states "Facsimile Dust Jackets L. L. C." In removable and protective mylar sleeve. A less expensive alternative to owning the pricey first edition in an original dust jacket which is typically worn or torn.
