New York: Wm. Morrow & Co., 1969. First edition of his second book. INSCRIBED, "To Dr. King, All best to you and yours. Harry Crews." In the light-green simulated cloth boards (versus medium to dark-green cloth boards), no known priority. [We had assumed the simulated cloth binding was a later state since not as nice but several citings of simulated cloth boards in first-issue dustwrappers have left us uncertain]. In the first-issue dustwrapper with GOSPEL SINGER reviews. Very minor rubbing to corners, otherwise about fine in fine dust jacket with the barest wear.
