Very Good / Very Good. Item #12220

New York: Richard Lupoff, 1963. Second Printing. Signed by Lupoff, the publisher, with lengthy inscription under copyright. Additional signed typed letter from Lupoff in envelope with replied-to letter, along with original publisher's announcement for the first edition in another envelope and a later-added separate bookplate signed by Lupoff without inscription.

Loose-leaf booklet (11" x 8.5"); 84pp. Green paper covers. Two-color map, special illustrated title page, and two illustrations. Covers a bit edgeworn from handling, with faint pencil erasure at top front and a shallow corner crease at top back. Interior pages also with some marginal signs of handling, but no chips, tears, or marks.

Correspondence included between a collector and Lupoff. The collector has retained the original announcement for the first edition, with the subscription / order form missing at bottom, in an envelope postmarked Jan. 1963. Another envelope contains a reply from Lupoff to a previous letter, apologizing for having missed our collector's order and promising to make it up with a copy of the second printing, as well as a copy of a reply from our collector back answering a couple of Lupoff's questions. Lupoff refers to the mistake in his inscription. Additional Lupoff-signed bookplate added by a later collector.
