Published by Putnam: New York, 1969. Please note that while "1969" is the only date present, our research has led us to believe that this book was most likely published sometime after that date. Boldly SIGNED by the celebrated author! NOT inscribed to anyone, simply SIGNED by the great Mario Puzo!A First American Book Club Edition, (BCE). Please remember this is NOT the First Edition/First Printing of this title! This is the First BCE, essentially an early reprint. Once again, please remember this is NOT a First Edition/First Printing! This rare treasure has some VERY clearly visible wear/age, but is still in Highly Desirable, Highly Collectible condition!
The book appears gently read and has no internal writing, no internal foxing, no remainder marks, no missing pages and is NOT Ex-Libris. The binding is holding tight and the pages are still surprisingly crisp and clean! Some general/shelf/age wear along with creases/scuffing/wear to the spine/corners/boards, marks/wear to the edge/fore pages and discoloration/wear to some of the pages, NOT affecting the text! Please note the wear to the spine/corners/boards, particularly noticeable near/along the edges! The wear is very clearly visible and should be carefully examined/considered.Please also note the there is a rather large "THANK YOU" sticker attached to the ffep/first blank page! The sticker/page has been closely photographed for your consideration. In our opinion, this is the most egregious wear affecting the book. The original dust jacket is fully intact but has considerable wear!
As a courtesy, the dust jacket has been encased in a brand new, removable, museum quality dust jacket protector! Some general/shelf/age wear along with creases, rips, scuffing and marks.
Please note the wear to the spine, at the corners and near/along the edges! The wear, particularly near/along the edges, is very clearly visible and 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. We purposely and closely photographed what we consider to be the most obvious and egregious wear. Once again, the wear to both the book and the dust jacket is VERY clearly visible!
Numerous photographs from various angles were taken for your consideration/inspection. Please closely and carefully view ALL the pictures for further clarification!
