New York: Viking, 1996. Book. As New. Hardcover. 1st Edition. First Edition/First Printing. Hardcover in unclipped dustjacket. 608 pages with photographs and index. Introduction and Epilogue by James R. Mellon. The late author's beautifully crafted book, by far the most intimate portrait we are likely to get of the Sage of Concord and his remarkable circle of friends. Other than a quarter inch scuff to the bottom of the back dustjacket, and two thin scuffs to the front dustjacket, this is a near fine dustjacket over a fine book. Unread. From my smoke-free collection. Ships in well-padded box..
