The Moon Pinnace
Garden City, Doubleday, 1985, 1986. Two states of the uncorrected proof copy. The first is shot from typescript and reproduces extensive holograph corrections, and leaves visible a substantial amount of text that was excised from the finished book. Foxing to spine and edges of text block; very good in wrappers, with praise for Williams' previous books on the back cover. The second state is typeset. Sunning to spine and staining to covers; good in wrappers, with blurbs about this Williams title by John Irving (a longtime friend), Carolyn Chute, and others on rear cover. Williams won the National Book Award in 1975 for his novel The Hair of Harold Roux. [#028878] $80
