Featured Book – Humboldt’s Gift Signed First Edition!Posted on Wednesday, April 26th, 2017
Here’s a rare book for true Chicagoans from our glass case:
A flat-signed first edition of Humboldt’s Gift by Saul Bellow.
Distributed as part of the First Edition Circle book club, this comes in a lightly worn dust jacket wrapped in protective mylar. The text block has minor sunning to the edges, but otherwise the boards and spine are in fine condition. Lacking any loose, torn or damaged pages, this is a wonderful tome, full of character and a great addition to any collector’s shelf. Included with the book is a promotional bookmark from Kroch’s & Bertano’s, a defunct but once legendary Chicago bookstore. We’re selling this lovely copy for $100.
This book is not available for online purchase.
