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. Only 1500 copies of this edition were produced: There was a special signing of 111 copies; this copy though SIGNED by the author was one of the regular 1389 copies. Near fine/fine copy with the merest trace of stress-wear at the front d.j., fold; barely noticible hint of age at top verso of d.j., if you can see it! It truly is a fine fresh copy.
