This is a beautiful copy of the Limited Edition of Recessional. The book is in Fine condition as is its color coordinated Slipcase. There are no flaws to report. This First edition was limited to 500 copies of which this is #293. What is unusual in this copy is the presence of the "JAM" stamp on the limitation page. This is James Michener's personal stamp and in the East it is called a "Chop". I have not seen it on other copies of this title that I have stocked. It is signed by Mr. Michener on the Limitation page. Recessional tells the story of a group of people living and working in an upscale Florida retirement home. The young doctor, who has left his practice in Chicago because of a frivolous malpractice suit, takes on the job of running and turning the retirement home into a profitable enterprise. Mr. Michener's writing, as always, is wonderfully human and full of humor and poignancy. He tells the story of the residents and staff in a manner that will carry the reader right through the story. The book is a delightful read and portrays the best of the human spirit in an uplifting as well as a dramatic way. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
