THE LOVE OF A GOOD WOMAN (proof)
Edition: First edition
Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1998. Advance uncorrected proof. Quarto Cerlox bound with pictorial first leaf guarded by a plastic leaf and red card terminal leaf. Ink underlining and occasional notes by Constance Rooke, Canadian author and academic, wife of Leon Rooke. The Rookes knew Munro. VG copy. Gives projected publication date of 26 Sept., 1998. The book won Canada's Giller and Trillium prizes as well as the US National Book Critics Circle award for fiction. She went on to win the Nobel Prize in 2013. This unwieldy advance format is rare, there being only a small number produced. I built one of the best Munro collections years ago but I didn't have one of these. 1.25 kg parcel.
