HUMBOLDT'S GIFT (ARC)
Edition: First printing
New York: Viking, 1975. Advance reading copy in non-pictorial yellow card covers printed in black. Book a little leaned; spine has rubbing at head; large corner torn from lower outer rear cover; VG otherwise. Laid in is the business card of Elisabeth Sifton of Viking Press. Though not anywhere indicated in the book, this was Robertson Davies' copy, the corner being torn away no doubt by the great man himself. This novel, based somewhat on the life of poet Delmore Schwartz, won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature for 1976. Also, a Burgess 99 title.
