LA MOTTA, Jake

The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards and won two, including De Niro for Best Actor. This copy is signed by the author. A somewhat uncommon book, having been issued by a publisher better-known for textbooks than for general trade publications. Mild splaying to boards; near fine in a very good, moderately edgeworn dust jacket. Scarce signed, especially in jacket. [#032886] $750
