Auster, Paul
CITY OF GLASS (rare 1st printing in 1st state DJ)
Sun and Moon Press, Los Angeles. Sun and Moon Press. Los Angeles. 1985. 203 pages. $13.95 price intact on rear of DJ. Original first issue jacket in super-rare first state; without the publisher's seal on the spine. Stated First Edition; in the rare first printing; with a full numberline; 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1. The DJ is Fine; only flaw keeping this from As-New status is mild toning to spine. The book is currently in lesser shape. This copy has been set aside for years waiting for me to get around to sending it for some restorative love; but have decided to list it until I get around to it. The panels are clean aside from still-sticky tape ghosts that can be neutralized. Rear endpapers are bright and clean; only faint taper-ghost outline; and navy blue endpapers hide it well. The front pastedown is clean; the FFEP is a 1 inch stub from top to bottom. Slightest faint bleed from navy endpapers; not bad. Half-title page has a small address label size outline scratch. Slight lean; first few pages have faint wave at edge. No stamps, writing or anything else other than noted. So yes it needs some love to breathe new life into it; but considering how rare true first printings in first state DJs are; it is worth the investment. Rare first state DJ is fine; with a flawed first printing book; with potential and legs. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
