New York: Samuel Weiser. 1972. First Paperback edition. Octavo, original pictorial wrappers (trade paper format). 326 pp. A few very faint spine creases, tiny corner bumps; a near fine copy. This edition is extremely scarce - we have had the 1975 Weiser reprint of this title, but in 40-odd years of paying attention we have never seen another copy of the first printing offered here. A very unusual edition with lovely cover graphics. Item #312279
