Shadow Box
NY, Putnam's, (1977). A working copy of the uncorrected proof, with more than a half dozen of Plimpton's photocopied inserts stapled to existing pages, notations where the inserts occur, and a renumbering of chapters after Chapter 17 is broken in two. "Zeroxes [sic] of Plimpton corrections attached" written on front cover. Handling apparent to covers; reading creases to spine; very good in wrappers. An interesting glimpse of both the work-in-progress and the publication methodology of the 1970s: an artifact of a now long-gone era. [#031745] $500
