New York: Farrar Straus and Giroux [FSG], 1980. Trial dust jacket for the first edition of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author's critically acclaimed and beloved work. This version differs strikingly from the final jacket in that the lettering for the author and title on the front panel and spine are in a deep orange rather the blue-black color ultimately used. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author's first book, basis for the wonderful 1987 film directed by Bill Forsyth starring Christine Lahti.
Lightly folded along rear hinge. Near Fine with a touch of the inevitable toning at the edges of the flaps. In a clear archival mylar folder.
