Lincoln in the Bardo
NY, Random House, (2017). An advance copy, in the form of 6-1/2" x 9" tapebound sheets, of Saunders' first novel, a bestseller that won the Booker Prize. An unusual copy, similar in size to the advance reading copy that was issued for this title, but without the interview included in that issue, and without any explicit statements of its being an advance copy, price, etc. The binding is a black tape spine, a black vinyl rear cover, and an acetate front cover over the page with the cover illustration. That it is an advance copy is indicated only by the fact that the "About the Author" section is indicated as "TK" -- i.e., to come. Casual examination reveals small textual differences between this copy and the published version on the final page of text. An extremely uncommon issue of an award-winning title, one of the most talked-about books of the year. Fine. [#034471] SOLD
