Abbie Hoffman - Steal this book

New York: Grove Press/Pirate editions, 1971. First edition (price of 1.95 on upper front cover; Grove logos on front cover and spine.) 12mo. 308 pp. Softcover. Numerous black and white illustrations, photographs, and instructive diagrams explaining, e.g., how to make free pay phone calls. Good condition. No markings to interior but a bit of rubbing along joints and a couple erosive tears to fore-edges of covers (nothing that the owner of a grifting handbook for hobos can honorably sneer at). Now, should you trust a treatise on disobedience whose title is in the form of a command? Perhaps not. But you still have to buy this book.
