About This Item

New York: St. Paul's Bibliographies. Good with no dust jacket. 1986. Trade Pb. 0906795370 . Owner's inscription/slightly worn and soiled .

Synopsis

From the text: "The craze for first impressions of first editions, and first issues of first impressions of first editions, and first states of first impressions of first editions, has occasionally resulted in speculation and bibliographical absurdity among collectors and dealers.... Any minor change made in the course of the original printing is immediately seized on as constituting an 'issue.' A trial binding used for perhaps twenty copies of salesmen's samples becomes a rare 'first issue.'"
