First Edition 1st Printing Signed by Searcy W., Bill Pittman, Pete L. - Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book

 

This book includes three different inscriptions on the first two pages of the book:

1) Searcy W. - He was a longtime AA member in Texas that was friends with Bill Wilson and sponsored Ebby Thacher during his time in Texas in the 1950s.

2) Bill Pittman - This book was owned by him at one time and wrote an inscription to its "new owner." Pittman is well known for the many recovery-related books that he authored.

3) Pete (from Palmer) Lowery - Was a well-known collector/archivist in Texas.

This is a First Edition First Printing book from 1939 with a reproduction dust jacket. The book is in fair condition. All pages of the book are intact with minimal markings inside the book. There are some bracket markings in the margins throughout the book. There is no other writing or markings on the text pages of the book. There is significant wear to the spine: Fading to the red cloth and gilt lettering, tear to the red cloth at the top of the spine cover, splitting at the front pages of the book with webbing exposed, the backboard is detached from the spine and is currently being held together by the red cloth cover.

Despite the conditions, this is a wonderful and unique book to add to any AA collection!

Please view all of the photos for conditions.
