The Water-Method Man
NY, Random House, (1972). The uncorrected proof copy of Irving's second book. Spine slightly faded, with a short thin "skid mark" on the rear cover; near fine in wrappers. A very uncommon proof, preceding his breakthrough novel, The World According to Garp, by six years, and dating from a period when proofs were not commonly collected, so few will likely have survived. This is the earliest John Irving proof we've seen. [#032779] $750
