The Broom of the System
Viking Pinguin Books David Foster Wallace, The Broom of the System. Viking Pinguin Book, 1987. An uncorrected proof copy of the first edition of the author's first novel in demin blue wrappers, preceding the advance reading copy. While the original first edition in hardcover, published on January 6th, 1987, may be listed as rare, especially since, reportedly, quite some of the reported 1300 copies went out to libraries, and the advanced reading copy even more uncommon, only a handfull of these uncorrected proofs exist. Enclosed is a July 9th, 1986 memo from the publisher presenting this uncorrected proof copy (to eight recipients only) and discussing the upcoming advanced reading copy, due for August, 'that will have the flash cover art in all its brilliant colours.' A very fine and tight copy in protective cover.
