THE LOLLIPOP TROLLOPS
"A very thin premeditated ghost..."
Anomalous copy of the signed first edition, with the limitation page bound in and doubly signed by author and illustrator, but a jacket ISBN matching the trade edition. Publisher's correspondence laid in, addressing the previous owner's query regarding this discrepancy: "And so I don't know what to tell you. I believe we did 50-100 limited edition print run, which sold out before the book was issued. And I know that we did not take any other cloth and have T & G sign them. So, I don't know how you got what you have unless the printer screwed up somehow with the copyright page." An attractive mystery.
(Normal, IL): Dalkey Archive Press, (1992). 8.5'' x 5.75''. Original black cloth with gilt-lettered spine. In original unclipped (19.95) pictorial dust jacket by Edward Gorey. Additional small Gorey illustration on limitation page. Purple endpapers. 171  pages. Signed by both Gorey and Theroux on title page. Limitation statement at colophon notes the edition of 100 signed and numbered hardcover copies, of which 51-100 were issued hors de commerce. This copy not numbered. Publisher's correspondence laid in.
