About this Item

First US edition, first printing of the author's remarkable debut novel. The dustjacket is "first issue" with the author's photo on the rear flap in sepia (a sort of dark reddish-brown) as opposed to black, and, in the text below the photo, "in Kentucky" following "a Trappist monastery". "in Kentucky" is missing from the "second issue" jackets. There is some scepticism in the book world regarding the existence of these jacket points, but I can assure you - they are real (I have, at the moment, both 'issues' at hand) although, because the so-called "second issue" jacket is on a (stated) second printing of the jacket, it might make more sense to just call it the "second printing" jacket. This is a fine book - clean and crisp, with four sharp corners and a strong, dark topstain. The jacket is near fine with only the lightest of rubbing to the points and no tears or chips. The spine is mildly faded (I have never seen a copy that wasn't) and there is some faint dustsoiling to the folds. The jacket is uncreased and is not price-clipped: $5.95. The author has signed his name in black ink on the full title page, and has drawn his own cartoonish self-portrait (with his initials "A.T." on his sweater front. A wonderfully unique copy thus.
