Barnett Frummer is an Unbloomed Flower

By Trillin, Calvin

New York: Viking, 1969. Book. Good+. Hardcover. Second Printing. Scarce, early hardback by the noted Trillin. The sound, attractive book has some issues which I think are the work of the bindery. There is an odd light, symmetrical paterning of the endsheets and pastedowns. Book is otherwise clean and unbumped. Jacket has short tears, but again, perhaps due to color choices at the bindery, has an unusal pattern with lots of sunning, especially to the spine. Much edgewear, in mylar wrapper. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.
