Hollywood, California: Angriff Press, 1975. Unexpurgated (okay, less expurgated) Angriff Press "pirate" edition (following Bowdlerized Macmillan trade issue of 1966.) First edition thus. Hardcover. Brick Octavo. 1348 pp. Green cloth binding. Indexed. Very good condition. Used bookstore price in red grease pencil on front endpaper corner, light wear along textblock edges; immaculate interior. Dust jacket, despite the slightest rubbing along its joints and spine tips, glows with the radiance and repose of an April afternoon in Arizona. You don't need to be reminded that this is an important book, but you do need to be reminded that important books don't just buy themselves and they don't just put themselves on the shelf and impress important dinner guests--don't you?
