Typed Letter Signed and Poppa John
NY, Farrar Straus Giroux, (1981). The book is inscribed by the author to Peter [Matthiessen] in 1982, and with a full-page typed letter signed laid in, which discusses both Matthiessen's writing and his own, including Poppa John, "a recent whipping boy for the Eastern press..." Letter folded, with some small stains. The book is near fine in a very good, spine-faded dust jacket, with one edge tear to the upper rear panel. [#032547] $300
