ISBN: 0916300048
San Francisco, CA: Gallimaufry, 1976. Limited First Edition. Softcover. An early collection of stories & short prose-poetic pieces by Steven Schutzman, the acclaimed poet, prose writer & playwright. Includes "The Bank Robbery," the much-anthologized, prize-winning short story. trade-format softcover original, a handsome production with artful, treated photographs by Tim Hildebrand on covers & interior. As noted in colophon, this copy is from an edition of 500, among which 25 were designated as numbered & signed by Schutzman. The last sentence states "This is number______," but the printed underline is not filled & there is no signature. Whether this copy was meant to be a numbered & signed edition or the sentence was mistakenly printed on all the copies we cannot determine. In any case, this is a very rare Schutzman collectible in unusually very fine condition with only mild rubbing & a few short, faint scratches & creases to front, back covers & spine; mild wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same; very light rubbing & spotting to edges of text block. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at mostly upper corners of page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #3820]
