Ship Of Fools (Signed First Printing), Porter, Katherine Anne
1 Porter, Katherine Anne Ship Of Fools (Signed First Printing)
Boston Little, Brown & Co. 1962 First Cloth Fine 
First Printing 1962. A very handsome copy in fine condition and in a near fine unclipped ($6.50) dustjacket. This copy is signed by the author on the title page--flatsigned only in blue ink. Rare to find this title in this condition. Gold cloth boards with red lettering and decorations--facsimile signature to the front board. Light age toning to the cloth boards, text block, and fore edge only. Otherwise a tight and unmarked copy. The dustjacket has only the lightest of edgewear--and only to one corner and the head of the spine. A very presentable copy for the Porter collector. The book was made into a fine Stanley Kramer movie. 
Price: 320.00 USD
