Alcoholics Anonymous 1st Edition 15th Printing 1954 - ODJ
This is a First Edition Fifteenth Printing of the Big Book with an original dust jacket.
This book was intended to be the last printing of the 1st Edition in anticipation of the 2nd Edition being released in 1955. AA needed to release the 16th printing later in 1954 due to concerns of running out of big books for sale before the release of the new edition. This printing was also the first printing released under “Alcoholics Anonymous Publishing, Inc.” All printings before this one were released under “Works Publishing, Inc.”
This book is in good condition. The cover and spine has some wear. The gold lettering on the spine is bright has some wear. The book is fully intact with no missing pages. A previous owner wrote their name and address on the first page of the book. There is no other writing or markings inside the book. The pages are clean and look great!
The dust jacket is pretty worn. The jacket has been torn into 3 separate pieces. There are several other smaller tears and a portion of the spine missing.
