PHILIP K. DICK: "The Preserving Machine" ~ Ace 1970 ~ 1st HC ~ SIGNED
1970. Condition: Very Good. AUTHOR : PHILIP K. DICK TITLE : THE PRESERVING MACHINE Publisher : Ace, New York, 1970 This is the first hardcover edition of this collection of stories by Philip K. Dick, which was originally published in the U. S. in 1969 as a paperback original. This copy is from the library of David Hartwell, a friend and editor of the author, and has been SIGNED BY PHILIP K. DICK on the front free endpaper. A note about forged signatures: Although some forgeries are expert and difficult to distinguish from the real thing, most are not. I suggest zooming in on signatures to evaluate the stroke of the pen. If the lines of the lettering look ragged rather than smooth and/or the thickness/darkness of the line varies suddenly rather than not at all or gradually, then be suspicious; these are signs that the person writing was tentative, which is not usually the case when one writes one's own name. Fine unread hardcover book in very good dust jacket. The dust jacket is protected in a Mylar cover. Light pencil notations on the front free endpaper provide provenance information by the professional bookseller from whom I purchased the book, which is why I have left them in place - but they can be easily erased (but I would not do so). If you have any question, please do not hesitate to ask. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
Bookseller: PKD (barjo!) [Studio City, California, United States]
