Alcoholics Anonymous First Edition, First Printing 1939 (Big Book) With New Reproduction Dust Jacket !

NY: Works Publishing Company, April 1939

The back board has a few tiny white rub spots (tiny like the size of grains of sand). The Gild on spine has a slight narrow line of dark rubbing 1/2" below the title and the spine's lettering is more faded than the front cover, still Gold Gild is 95% on spine and 100% on front board. Inside, the only evidence of having been read that I have found is the one dog-eared page "How It Works". The rest of the book appears to be unread, with a very slight yellowing/browning of the pages, very consistent. No water damage or abrasions anywhere. NO marks or writing in book !

Book is in Near Fine condition
