Autobiography Of A Yogi, 1959, 8th Edition + PB reading Copy

By Yogananda, Paramahansa

Los Amgeles: Self-Realization Fellowsip, 1959. Book. Fair. Hardcover. Later Printing. Pretty much every cosmetic flaw possible is evident on this structurally sound hard cover of the Yogi's writing. While the text is unmarked (no owners names penned either) and the boards have no major bump (some tip abrasion) the fore-edge has smudging, the text tips have some occasional crease (presumably improper closure, now corrected) and the book has a somewhat tired look. The spines coloring is a trifle uneven. Spine and cover gilt quite decent. Binding seems fine, no gapping at gutters. Jacket (price $4.00) is exceedingly rough, chips out, notable back panel soiling, tears, front flap loose-held in place by the mylar wrapper, Will shoot book and jacket both for foto to accompany listing. JUST RECEIVED and added to the above a newish mass market paperback of the same title, assuming here that the hardcover will be purchased as a non-reading copy. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately.
