First edition, first impression. With an inserted typed letter signed from the author to a professor at the University of Cincinnati: “Dear Mr. Godshalk, I know J. B. Cabell’s works only at second hand; have never been curious enough, despite several critics’ comparisons, to know them at first. So… But good luck with the seminar. Cordially, John Barth”.

Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles to spine in black. With the dust jacket. Bindings very lightly rubbed, slight bump to lower corner. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with faint tanning to spine panel.
