1 Hillenbrand, Laura Seabiscuit: An American Legend
New York Random House Inc 2001 0375502912 / 9780375502910 First Edition, First Printing Hard Cover 
[2001]. Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Black boards quarterbound in black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Quarto. 399pps. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The first-state dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is very mildly rubbed; the original price (24.95) is intact. ".Seabiscuit was an unlikely champion: a roughhewn, undersized horse with a sad little tail and knees that wouldn't straighten all the way. But, thanks to the efforts of three men, Seabiscuit became one of the most spectacular performers in sports history. The rags-to-riches horse emerged as an American cultural icon, drawing an immense following and becoming the single biggest newsmaker of 1938 -- receiving more coverage than FDR or Hitler. Laura Hillenbrand beautifully renders this story of one horse's journey from also-ran to national luminary." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
