About the Book

Title: Wilt;

Publisher: Macmillan

Publication Date: 1973

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Fine

Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good

Signed: Signed by Author

Edition: 1st Edition


1st printing of the 1st edition, SIGNED by Chamberlain (inscribed: "To Susy, Peace."); fine in dust jacket that would also grade fine save for bit of paper loss at lower right front corner & crease/chip at upper spine. In the introduction to this, Chamberlain's 1st book, collaborator Shaw writes "We intended. to write a book that was not just another sports book, not just another black book, not just another celebrity book - and not just another one of those first-person books in which the protagonist attributes all his success to good luck and the help of everyone hes ever known, from the newspaper vendor on the corner to the boy who shined his shoes last time he was in Newark Airport. We wanted a book that would capture and reveal Wilt Chamberlain, the man, as he really is - a complex, diverse, unique, immensely self-assured and self-possessed human being. The words are Wilt's words. The thoughts are Wilt's thoughts. And the book is Wilt's book." BW photos. 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1111923544
