IRVING, John

(n.p.): (n.p.). [ca. 1997-98]. An advance issue consisting of velobound, double-sided typescript. 743 pages. A very uncommon format -- we've seen this typescript once before, but in a different type of binding. It appears to predate any publisher's production of this title; the earlier copy we had seen had been sent to a U.K. reader whose blurb appeared on the U.K. advance reading copy. Velo binding cracked at the front, missing the bottom third; otherwise near fine. First Edition. Near Fine.

IRVING, John:

Amsterdam: Anthos, 1998. . 8vo, 23cm. Pp. 523,[3]. Orig. black boards in decor. dust-jacket. Faint trace of vertical fold to spine part of jacket, excellent condition otherwise, as new. - Colophon: "First published in the Netherlands 1998 by Uitgeverij Anthos, Amsterdam [...] ISBN 90 414 0284 5." Robert Ammerlaan of Anthos publishhing house got a one-month franchise for bringing out the first trade edition of this book, ahead of Random House and Bloomsbuy, the present being thus the real first edition. It is scarce, as it can be assumed that the publication of an English-language edition in a non-English speaking country with a population 1/20th that of the U.S. would be done in very small numbers.
