Mason and Dixon
NY, Henry Holt, (1997). Pynchon's editor's copy of the uncorrected proof, with a trial jacket. This is the second issue of the uncorrected proof copy: all proofs were issued in plain blue wrappers and are not to be confused with the later two variants of advance reading copy in beige wrappers. This second issue proof, in blue wrappers, has a tipped-in title page that adds the ampersand missing in the first issue. This is a fine copy with the bookplate of Ray Roberts, Pynchon's editor, inside the front cover, and two dust jackets (a bit crimped at the crown where they extend past the proof). One jacket corresponds to the trade edition design of graphics only (with the type later being supplied on an acetate overlay). The second jacket is unique, having the information (author, title, publisher, ISBN code) printed directly on the jacket. [#028527] SOLD
