1 Dexter, Pete Paris Trout
New York Random House 1988 0-394-56370-0 / 9780394563701 First Edition Hard Cover 
Near Fine in a Fine dust jacket. Black boards quarterbound in black cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in gilt. Quarto. 306pps. First Printing. A date is penned in the upper corner of the ffep., and there is a bit of faint dustspotting to the closed page-edges, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The dust jacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light touches of crinkling to the extremities; the original price (17.95) is intact. A very nice, collector's-quality copy of this National Book Award winner.
