Trumps of Doom

by Zelazny, Roger

Condition: Very Good+/Near Fine

New York, New York, U.S.A.: Arbor House Pub Co, 1985. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Very Good+/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. This novel of the world of Amber centers upon Corwin's son Merlin, a San Francisco computer programmer and designer who becomes the target of a killer and must fight his way back to Amber across the worlds of Shadow. First printing with correct full number line sequence. This is a very clean copy with no writing, marks, underlining, or bookplates. No remainder marks. Not an ex-library copy. Spine is tight and crisp. Corners are square, and the boards are flat and true. Boards are fairly clean with only minor wear/scuffing, however the front board has a 1" white line along the lower edge. The back board has a similar white mark on the lower edge, but it is only about the size of a pinhead. The upper and lower spine cover has a bit of bumping and soiling as well. This book would probably have been graded higher in condition were it not for some moisture damage to pages 39 through 44. This has resulted in puckering to those pages. Otherwise this is a beautiful copy with just a hint of browning to the pages. Dust jacket is not price-clipped and is in beautiful condition with minimal wear except for some very, very slight browning as well. This collectible, very good+/near fine, first edition/first printing copy is protected with an archival mylar dust jacket cover. Satisfaction guaranteed!
