The Hunt for Red October, A Novel (SIGNED, ASSOCIATION COPY)

by Clancy, Tom

Condition: Very Good-/Fair+

Naval Institue Press, 1984. Book. Very Good-. Hard Cover with Dustjacket. Signed by Author(s). First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover with dustjacket : very good minus / fair plus. Jacket in new mylar protector; jacket has edge wear with some short tears and small chips; moderate scratching and rubbing; dampstain moderately on the outside but also on the unseen back side where the red of the book bled onto the jacket, although the book is only slightly affected; no price on jacket. Book is a red cloth hardcover with silver lettering on spine and a stamped illustration of submarine and hammer and sickle on front; gray endpapers; no additional printings stated on copyright page thus indicating a first printing by this publisher. The binding has light wear along bottom edge with the cloth worn through a small bit at front corner; a small amount of the red is rubbed off along that bottom edge; very slight soiling to outer edges of text block; slight rippling to a few pages in the middle. Inscribed and signed on ffep by Tom Clancy to Clive Cussler, with a fun inscription. The signature is different than is usually seen, but there is enough similarities between the writing that makes it seem likely that Clancy wrote with a deliberate and slower hand than usual; also, the dedication to Ralph Chatham has been partly crossed out and rewritten in Clancy's hand with a humorous reference to Coonts. .
