To Renew America

By Gingrich, Newt

Norwalk, CT: The Easton Press, 1995. This book is still in good, sound shape but with two big flaws that will deter the Easton perfectionist. The lower fore-corner of covers has abrasion down to the boards in a limited but obvious area, with mild associated bumping there to that corner. Two page leaves have crumpling and tears which have been repaired somewhat irregularly with clear tape; honestly, these look kind of like a puppy got to the book. Otherwise it ain't bad, it looks good on the shelf, and of course it's signed by Newt. SOLD AS IS. Leatherbound Limited and Signed First Edition, in the usual Easton style, silk endpapers and ribbon, gilt decorated covers and page edges.. Signed. Signed First Edition. HARDCOVER. As Is/No Jacket as published. Octavo.
