BLUE HIGHWAYS. A Journey into America. (proof copy)
Edition: First printing
Boston: Little, Brown, 1983 (1982, actually). Uncorrected proof. pp (xii), 367, perfect bound, in cream card covers printed in black. In the proof dust jacket. Book is fine. The proof jacket (flaps & rear panel blank) is somewhat used, owing to being taller than the proof. There are short creased tears along the top edge, and a large "Y" shaped creased tear to upper front panel internally repaired with paper archival tape. The front panel is centered properly, causing the too-large spine to be off center when folded on to the proof. Still, a complete clean example. Front cover gives publication date as 14 Jan., 1983 (16.95), while first page indicates Feb. publication. The acclaimed best-selling first book, a travelogue, by this American Indian author, in a very scarce advance format.
