New York: Ticknor & Fields, 1988. First edition. Hardcover. The second book from the author of the memorable "The Beans of Egypt, Maine." A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Signed and very warmly inscribed by Chute to Rolland Comstock. The inscription covers most of the title page and the page opposite as well making several corrections to the text. In the extensive inscription Chute talks about the publishing history of the book and details the various mistakes that occurred. A truly interesting copy.
