The true first edition of Dreams From My Father by Barack Obama.
Octavo, xi, 403pp. White boards, black cloth spine, title in gilt on spine. Stated “first edition” on copyright page with first state number line (98765432). Pen mark on bottom edge of text block. In publisher’s first state dust jacket, black stain on verso near bottom edge of spine, otherwise a near fine example with $23.00 on front flap and bright illustrations. An excellent example.
As the name recognition of Barack Obama increased, Dreams From My Father was reissued by Crown Publishing in 2004. This is the true first edition, which only sold 8,000 copies then went out of print shortly after it was published in 1995.
