Austin: The Encino Press, 1968. Large octavo. Cloth, paper spine label. Fine in near fine dust jacket marred only by a small rub at the top edge of the rear panel. Item #WRCLIT55056
First edition, corrected printing, trade issue. Inscribed by the author, most likely ca. the late 1970s: "For Lee Nobody knows the truth about this book - Larry." The sentiment expressed in the author's inscription remains appropriate today, in light of several descriptions associated with copies of the uncorrected and corrected printings currently listed online. In fact, copies of the uncorrected printing did enter trade distribution, although genuine efforts were made by the publisher to retrieve them, and a good number of other copies were distributed through other channels.
