This is a beautiful Limited First edition of John Barth's wonderful bestseller. This volume is in Very Fine condition with the publisher's slipcase also in Very Fine condition. This edition was Limited to 250 copies of which this is #182. It is signed and numbered on the limitation page. There is a bump to the bottom right corner of the spine but it is not as bad as it looks. It is not very visible at all when the book is in its slipcase. This book will make a wonderful addition to the collection of any John Barth collector. The New York Times Book Review has said 'The best writer of fiction that we have and one of the best we have ever had...His audience must be that prepared by Joyce, Proust, Mann, and Faulkner...Barth is a comic genius of the highest order'. Those are powerful words coming from the normally fairly conservative New York Times! Don't let it make you hesitate. Anyone who is a good reader can truly enjoy this book. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
