Lescroart, John
Rasputin's Revenge
New York: Donald I. Fine Books, 1987. First edition first printing of the second novel in the Son of Holmes series. This novel is a hard cover review copy with note from the publisher. SIGNED by the author on the title page. Here is a note from the author about the book. "Dear Don This was as you say an interesting and to a new novelist heartbreaking development. The first edition of RR was printed with a host of gross errors, due apparently to the typesetting people since the galleys were fine. Donald I. Fine recalled the entire print run and tipped in something like forty pages in the middle. That fixed the problem, but you can easily see which books this affected by the splint in the tipped in section. Since then, I ve not heard of any other missing pages or text. Look me up at LCC and we can talk about this more. All best, John." John himself inspected the book at the signing and deemed it to be one of the ones that 'got away.' Light rubbing to the surface of the dustjacket. Price clipped otherwise in fine / near fine unread condition.
Bookseller: Scene of the Crime Books, IOBA [Canada]
