Del Rey, 1976. Hardcover. Fair condition. Paper boards rumpled on back side. Wear along textblock edge. Code S-33 on gutter of page 183. No jacket (Phil Collins doesn't wear a jacket either, did you know that?). Presumably book club edition. You might not know another thing: the star wars book--this book--came out before the movie. This is a collector's item for sure: $64.99

β€’
Let Us Now Praise Famous Men was a collaboration between Agee and Evans, the former contributing the text and the latter the now-infamous photographic series presented at the front of book.

Isaac Bashevis Singer - The Family Moskat. Knopf, 1950. Hardcover. 8vo. 1/4 red cloth binding. 611 pp. Translated from Yiddish by A. H. Gross. Good condition. Slight rubbing to sides, forecorners of boards. Small stain along textblock fore-edge. Used bookstore price, small note about edition on flyleaf in pencil; no other markings. Dust jacket is chipped along periphery, has a small open tear along upper front edge--still quite bright. The aforementioned bookseller note denominates this book a first edition, but I'm not sure. It's possibly a trade edition that's been married to a book-club-edition dust jacket (no price on flap) or was issued by an obscure book club. There is no blind stamp on boards. In any case, it's a perfectly respectable copy of Singer's very first book: $149.99
