Alcoholics Anonymous 1st Edition 16th Printing 1954 - ODJ
This is a First Edition Sixteenth Printing of the Big Book with an original dust jacket.
This was the last printing of the 1st Edition big books. It was unexpected for this printing to be released due to plans for the 2nd Edition books release date in 1955. There was a need for more books to be printed ahead of the scheduled release because the 15th printings were selling so fast! There were only 15,000 16th printings released so there are not many available to find, especially in such good condition and with an original dust jacket.
This book is in very good condition. The covers looks great. The gold lettering on the spine is bright and looks great. The book is fully intact with no missing pages. There is a small stain on the bottom edge of the pages in the book. The stain is visible from the first page of “To Employers” to the end of the book. There is no writing or markings in the book.
The dust jacket has some wear with chipping and tears. A previous owner of the book used tape to reinforce the jacket in locations with tears.
