The signed limited issue of the first trade edition of what may be Irving’s best-loved book (a substantial claim for a book by the author of The World According to Garp), and the novel from which the movie Simon Birch was adapted. The initial printing of this book was for the Franklin Press – a book club by any other name. Subsequently Morrow printed their edition of which just 250 were issued specially bound and signed. The most desirable and least common manifestation.

Octavo. Original tan and oatmeal cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt, textured endpapers. With the publisher’s tan cloth slipcase. Fine in the publisher’s slipcase.
