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 has some marks from wear. The gold lettering on the spine looks great. The book is fully intact with no missing pages.There is no writing or markings inside the book. The pages are clean and look great!
The dust jacket is pretty worn. There are several tears and small pieces missing. The jacket has been torn into two separate pieces. There has been tape applied to the backside of the jacket to hold it in place on top of a reproduction dust jacket.
