The Story of How Many Thousands of Men and Women Have Recovered from Alcoholism
Hardcover in blue cloth with spine title in gold and in the original red and yellow dust jacket
Works Publishing Inc., New York City, 1946, 400 pages. Hardcover bound in blue cloth with spine title in gilt and in the original red and yellow dust jacket. The jacket shows rubbing and wear/tears with some chipping, especially along the edges and the top of the spine. The colors of the dust jacket are still strong, little or no fading. The jacket and copyright page both identify this as a 9th printing from January 1946.
The book itself shows only light wear, with some gilt faded from the top of the spine (the words Alcoholics Anonymous,) and some edge wear on the top and bottom of the back board only. The blue boards themselves are almost entirely clean and unmarked. The book is spotless, there is not a mark to be found inside, not even a previous owner's name, no markings of any kind, pages are clean and white. The inner hinges are secure and the binding is sound; the corners are sharp, no bumping. The book stands straight and square, not a hint of any lean. No oders. A very solid copy of a scarce book.
