1 Barth, John Letters
New York G. P. Putnam's Sons 1979 399-12425-X First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
Fine copy in very good Brodarted dust jacket. First printing of the first trade edition in a fine Brodarted dust jacket. The dust jacket puzzles us. It has a 1/2" closed tear to the head of the spine, and is rubbed slightly at corners and edges, all normal wear for a large book of this age. But, there are score marks that originated from the inside of the dust jacket! There are four of these, one on each major DJ surface, very light at bottom, becoming more pronounced as the score line proceeds to the top. We believe that this was a production problem, but you need to know of these defects. The book is unread. It has gray paper boards with wide, black cloth binding, silver lettering on spine, 772 pp. There is some faint binding glue shadow on the back board, the top and bottom edges are sunned a little. Once this copy left the factory, it was carefully handled.
