A Son of the Circus
NY, Random House, (1994). The uncorrected proof copy, lacking the first page, which contained the publisher's text describing the book and, very briefly, the author, and was excised from most copies, reportedly at the author's request. From the library of author Peter Matthiessen, bearing his notes only on the final page: "Harada Roshi/ 'world is full of dread'/ huge clean wind." Foxed; very good in wrappers. [#032257] $70
