Please note that while "1990" is the only date present, our research has led us to believe that this copy was most likely published sometime after that date. Boldly SIGNED/INSCRIBED by the celebrated author! SIGNED/INSCRIBED on the title page by the great Michael Crichton! An American Book Club Edition, (BCE).
Please remember this is NOT the First Edition/First Printing of this title! This is a BCE, essentially an early reprint. Once again, this is NOT a First Edition/First Printing.This rare treasure has some VERY clearly visible wear, but when considering its' scarcity, is still in Highly Desirable, Highly Collectible condition! The book appears gently read and other than a previous owner signature on ffep/first blank page, has no internal writing, no foxing, no remainder marks, no missing pages and is NOT Ex-Libris.
The binding has some clearly visible wear, but is still holding tight and the pages are surprisingly crisp and clean! Some general/shelf wear along with a noticeable lean/slant, creases/scuffing/wear to the spine/corners/cloth boards, marks/wear to the edge/fore pages and creases/rips/wear to some of the pages. Please note the wear to the spine/corners/cloth boards, particularly noticeable near/along the edges, and the creases/rips/wear that is present on some of the pages, varying in size and severity. The rips/wear that is present on some of the pages has resulted in some loss of paper!
A majority of the wear is located near/along the edges of pages 167 through 190. We closely photographed a few of the pages that have the most extensive wear. All of the wear, but particularly the damaged pages, is VERY clearly visible! The wear is substantial and should be carefully examined/considered.As previously mentioned, there is a previous owner signature, written in pen and located near the top edge of the ffep/first blank page! The signature/internal writing is very clearly visible and has been closely photographed for your consideration. The original dust jacket is fully intact but has substantial wear! Some general/shelf wear along with creases, scuffing, rips and marks. There are also some large marks/discoloration on the inside of the dust jacket! Please note the wear on the spine, at the corners and near/along the edges! The wear, particularly at the corners and near/along the edges, is extensive and VERY clearly visible! All of the wear should be carefully examined/considered. We tend to grade the condition of our books rather harshly and took into consideration any and all wear when determining the value of this rare book. Our VERY LOW asking price is a reflection of that consideration and if this copy was in better condition our asking price would be considerably higher.
We purposely and closely photographed what we consider to be the most obvious and egregious wear. Once again, we want to reiterate that the wear to both the book and the dust jacket is EXTENSIVE/SUBSTANTIAL! Numerous photographs from various angles were taken for your consideration/inspection. Please closely and carefully view ALL the pictures for further clarification! The item "Jurassic Park-Michael Crichton-SIGNED!-Book Club Edition-VERY RARE" is in sale since Tuesday, January 12, 2021.
