A Fine first printing of the first edition in equally unblemished dust-jacket, signed by author John Barth. Previous owner's blind stamp to front flyleaf.

This "memoir wrapped in a novel" finds the author and his wife lost at sea during a cruise on Chesapeake Bay, where Barth meets up with his fictional twin sister and a friend who take him through a journey of his past novels. What was to be a modest three day cruise on a cutter-rigged sloop turns out to be a memoir at sea through sun and storm.
