Hampton Falls, New Hampshire: Donald M. Grant Publisher, Inc, 1996. Leather bound. Near Fine/Near Fine. Don Maitz. A very unusual copy of the 1996 limited edition.

THE DETAILED, REALISTIC WATERCOLOR IS OF A PERPLEXED, DEFEATED-LOOKING POLICE OFFICER FROM "DESPERATION, NEVADA" AND IS SIGNED BELOW THE ARTWORK (IN ADDITION TO BEING SIGNED AT THE LIMITATION {#2 OF 19} TO THE RIGHT OF THE ARTWORK). A very sharp copy to boot. Tight and Near Fine to Fine in a crisp, price-intact, Near Fine to Fine dustrjacket. Also includes an impressive, Near Fine example of the publisher's printed, leatherette slipcase. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]
