A SIGNED US first edition, first impression - with a complete number string which includes the number 1.
Wrapper: The wrapper on this copy is very bright, is unfaded, and is complete. It is unclipped. It has a tiny (and invisible) mark on the back panel. Looks very sharp.
Book: The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. There is a tiny hint of bruising to the spine ends. The pages and closed page edges are clean and bright. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. No remainder marks. James Ellroy has written the word Stab on the ffep and then SIGNED his name - his usual squiggle. A lovely copy in a protected wrapper.
