Pachinko by Min Jin Lee, Signed First Edition, 2017, Very Rare. New York Times Bestseller by Min Jin Lee. This first edition is signed and very rare. This lovely book was given to me in this condition and has been stored on a bookcase ever since.
The pages are in very good condition but unfortunately the dust jacket has experienced some wear and tear, with a few tears, a pen mark on the spine and evidence of cellotape inside the dust jacket. Please let me know if you would like any additional photos.
Hard to part with such a lovely, rare book but running out of room on my bookcases so looking to pass on for others to enjoy. Please take a moment to look at the other books on my page.
