A UK first edition, first impression. Comes with a SIGNED type- written card.
Wrapper : The wrapper on this copy is bright, unfaded, complete and unclipped. Looks sharp.
Book : The book is square and very tight. There are no previous ownership inscriptions. The boards are clean and unfaded, the corners sharp. It shows a trivial touch of bruising to the spine ends. The pages are clean and bright, as are the closed page edges. The binding is tight - no cracked hinges. No remainder marks. This copy comes with a SIGNED type- written card, dated 5 December 1987. The card reads : Dear Al, I'm caught up on things and feel better after my recent illness, so send me the books to sign. I only have one copy of Proletarian Laughter and would appreciate getting a less battered copy. Thank you. THE WAY WE DIE NOW, the new Hoke Moseley novel, is scheduled for April 1988 publication by Random House. Have a Happy Holiday Season. The card is hand SIGNED. A very nice copy in a protected wrapper.
