Burke, James Lee
The Convict: Stories [Set of Three Copies]
Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 1985. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. Three copies of Burke's scarcest book, a collection of stories set in Louisiana. 1) LSU hardcover first edition, often reported to be one of 500 copies, but I suspect that it's more like 1000 copies. This is a cleverly **RESTORED EX-LIBRARY COPY**, with new endpapers and faint tape shadows on the covers; library markings professionally removed from the title page. Signed by Burke on the title page.2) UK hardcover first edition, also printed in small numbers (like the US edition, most copies were paperbacks). London: Orion, 1995. A near fine copy in a fine dust jacket, inscribed by Burke, "To Tom, all the best, James Lee Burke." With a very short tear on the edge of the title page.3) UK paperback first edition (issued simultaneously with the hardcover). A fine copy. In a custom black-cloth clamshell box.
Bookseller: Downtown Brown Books, ABAA [United States]
