A special Limited first edition/first printing preceding the trade edition. SIGNED by author Vance Bourjaily in unread Fine condition, only some rather minute scrapes to the gilted pages separate this copy from As New.

Charles Mizzourin, Washington aide to a U. S. Senator, stumbles onto a rich source of information about the dead father he never knew. Mike Mizzourin's diary, long hidden inside a "fake book" used by professional musicians to help them "fake" hundreds of popular songs without buying sheet music, is doled out to Charles piecemeal by his father's former employer.

This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather and features gilded, sewn in pages and ribbon marker, simply superb quality, Franklin Library at its best.
