Lightest shelf wear to tips, corners, and edges of the book, curious gift inscription, else cleand unmarked; no jacket as issued. First printing, full number line. Glen Baxter's artwork has appeared in The New Yorker, Vanity Fair and The Independent on Sunday. His images and their corresponding captions employ art and language inspired by pulp fiction and adventure comics with intellectual jokes and references. His simple line-drawings often feature cowboys, gangsters, explorers and schoolchildren, who utter incongruous intellectual statements regarding art and philosophy. Books and other items ship promptly with a tracking number and (generally over $15.00) jacket protectors if applicable. Clean recycled packing material will be used when possible. The Book Shed has a been a member of the Vermont Antiquarian Bookseller's Association since 1997.
