[New York]: Alfred a Knopf Inc B.E. Trice, 1998. Limited Lettered First Edition. Quarter Leather & Cloth. Fine. Item #4411
A beautiful and scarce Limited "lettered" edition signed by the author on the limitation page and in place of the letter it states "Herb Yellin's Copy." This dedication makes this book the most rare of all the editions: it is in the format of the scarce 26 lettered edition with the quarterbound dark blue leather with gold cloth and gold titling, and the B.E. Trice imprint on the spine, but instead of one of the 26 letters, this book was actually printed with "Herb Yellin's Copy" on the limitation, literally one of a kind. In fine unread condition with a fine matching slipcase bound in blue cloth with gold titling.
It's hard to imagine that a publisher would reset the font to make this single imprint, but they did and it created a wonderful one-of-a kind edition for the late Herb Yellin who was the beloved founder and publisher of Lord John Press; he passed away in 2014 and this beautiful and scarce book is from his library.
