Price: $135.00

Publisher: San Francisco/Columbia, PA:, Underwood-Miller,, 1977.

Edition: First Illustrated Edition.


Just missed out by a few months being the true first hardcover edition, but Gregg Press beat it out! It is nonetheless the handsomest version ever done of what many consider the author's best book. Fantastic illustrations by the wonderful Stephen Fabian.

Price: $25.00

Publisher: San Francisco/Columbia, PA:, Underwood-Miller,, 1978 .

Edition: First Edition Paperbound.


An excellent bibliography of the noted writer. The only shortcoming of the book is that the author continued to write and publish until well into the 90's! The book is illustrated with cover reproductions which is a great help. Only 900 paper copies produced. Still in shrinkwrap. Fine. View more info
