(Somerville), Candlewick Press, (2017). The advance reading copy of Bartok's Dickensian, steampunk middle grade fantasy about orphaned "groundlings," which even before publication was slated to be both a movie and a Broadway musical. Signed by the author. Textual differences exist between this advance copy and the finished book. Light tap to spine crown, else fine in wrappers. Bartok won the National Book Critics Circle Award for her memoir The Memory Palace. Uncommon as an advance copy, and especially so signed. [#034438] $150
