This is a fine copy, number 139 of a printing limited to 170 copies, signed by the author, Jane Smiley, and the artist, Susan Nees, published by Coffee House Press/Espresso Editions, Minneapolis in 1990.
The black cloth cover (app. 9″ x 12″), with blind-embossed title and author on the front, is as new. The six hand colored linoleum cuts are also as new, as is all text. Other than the author’s and artist’s signatures, and the copy number, there is no writing. There are no stamps or other attachments. There are no stains or tears.
The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. This sale includes a separate four-panel promotional brochure, folded loosely in the book. The clear plastic protective cover has surface scuffs and a slight darkening to the red spine bottom, but no other flaws. The ribbon tie has no tears, fade or stains.
The accompanying photos are of this copy.
