VERY GOOD Condition HARD COVER. Edited by Katherine B. Judson, introduction by Peter Iverson, published by Northern Illinois University Press, Dekalb, IL, 2000, assumed first ... edition, 204pp. Former library book with all the usual stamps and stickers. This book appears as though it has never been read, it is one of those books that were lost in the stacks and no one could find it again. The text is exceptionally clean, crisp and bright with no noticeable extraneous markings, folds or blemishes. The binding is tight and the spine is solid. The dust jacket is missing, but I believe that one was never issued for the hard cover edition. The cover is yellow cloth-covered boards with brown lettering on the front cover and spine. The cover has minimal shelf/edgewear with gentle bumping of the spine. Excellent clean copy. ISBN: 0875802508.
