[New York]: Atlantic Monthly,  8vo, (7), 356pp. Original black cloth, dark blue boards, dust-jacket, as new.Signed by the author on the title-page. First edition, signed by the author on the title-page. Fraziers first book, with the misprint on p. 25 line 16 of man-woman for mad-woman. Ken Lopez notes: a Civil War novel and a publishing phenomenon: after a modest 25,000 copy first printing, the book eventually sold more than a million copies in hardcover and won the National Book Award -- a rare combination of literary and commercial success for any work of fiction, let alone a first novel. This copy does not have the John Berendt blurb attached on a label to the front panel (not exactly an issue point, as some copies had this affixed on publication day, while others didn't).
