The Hugo-award-winning sci-fi author edits this collection of 9 tales, both factual & fictional, about humans raised by animals, each with a Foreword by Farmer & a Bibliography in rear. From a single-owner collection, this is a FIRST EDITION, First Printing hardcover, SIGNED BY AUTHOR on full title page. Both book & DJ are nearly perfect, BUT book shows very light dampstaining to exterior page edges & outer edges of white linen boards. Does NOT impact interior, but downgrades book to VG+, & significantly lowers your price! Otherwise completely clean, binding tight & square. Absolutely NO writing, highlighting, or underlining, NOT ex-lib. Unclipped DJ (with orig. $6.95 price) shows some yellowing to white areas & very mild rubbing to extremities; beautifully protected in archival mylar cover since purchased new. Please see our photos! AMZ is using part of OUR PHOTOS #1 & #2 as their "stock" image; see others right next to our listing. This is the EXACT book you will receive only from us!
