Mr. Ives' Christmas
(NY), HarperCollins, (1995). An advance preview edition of the fourth book by this Pulitzer Prize-winning author, a novel of a man coming to terms with the death of his son. The copyright page would lead one to believe this issue was bound from sheets of the second printing; reportedly this is an error and the text does indeed precede the first printing and includes textual differences from the final published version. Clothbound, in a decorative cardboard slipcase resembling a gift-wrapped box. A fine copy, signed by the author on a tipped-in bookplate. [#011888] $25
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
