You Shall Know Our Velocity
(San Francisco/Brooklyn), (McSweeney's), (2002). His second book and first novel, and the first of his books to be published by his own McSweeney's press. This is the true first, one of the 10,000 copies that state "First Edition" and were offered for sale only at the McSweeney's website. There were an additional 40,000 copies of the "first trade edition," which did not state "First Edition" and were offered for sale in bookstores chosen by Eggers. Fine without dust jacket, as issued. Together with a very good copy of a 2002 advance excerpt from the book in The New Yorker, entitled "Where We Were," with textual differences from the published version. [#032980] $25
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
