A Lession Before Dying

Gaines, Ernest J.

Alfred A. Knopf

$21.00

FIRST EDITION is stated on the copyright page. Binding is black with white cloth spine. $21.00 price is on the upper corner of the front dust jacket flap, and there are four reviews on the back.

A special signed Advance Reading Copy (not shown) precedes the first edition. It is a soft cover and was issued in a pictorial cardboard slipcase. There was also a signed leather bound edition published by Easton Press about five years after the first edition, and obviously not a first.

A Lession Before Dying is an Oprah's Book Club selection.
