New York: Del Rey, 1986. First Printing. Hard Cover. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #064709
Signed, dated, and inscribed to a named individual by the author at the front free endpaper. Crisp, bright, clean pages; square, tight binding; hard cover shows only the barest hint of shelf rubbing at the spine heel and a small, light inward turn at the top right front corner. Jacket, unclipped, shows only nearly negligible spine end rubbing and a tiny, shallow wrinkle at the top right front corner, otherwise lovely, now protected in a clear sleeve. It's odd to think of a book by this author being underrated, but Charles de Lint, eat your heart out, I say - and not lightly.
