First edition, and the only one. One of 350 copies SIGNED by the author (although Crandell [A48] calls for the copies to be numbered, they were issued unnumbered). This copy in marbled boards with light-tan cloth spine--usually seen with a light-blue cloth spine. We presume this was a trial binding. There are areas of faint blue coloration to the spine, which seems to have migrated from the blue marbling--perhaps explaining the switch to light-blue cloth. Fine in fine, plain-white dust jacket, as issued. Bookseller Inventory #
