Signed paperback issue of Nabokov’s Garden by Bobbie Ann Mason.
Octavo, 196pp. Yellow paperback, $3.25 retail price on rear cover. Solid text block, light wear to joints, shelf wear, a near fine example. Signed by the author on the title page. Includes laid-in card from publisher stating only one printing occurred, with paperback and cloth editions released at the same time. An incredibly scarce example.
