There is also a rare Red Bound Second Printing. When printing the 1939 First they bound less than the 5000 contracted for. These left over bindings from the first printing were used on the second printings.
It is estimated that 240 of the Red bindings were used. Over time the number now available is very limited. The Red Bound Second Printing is the Rarest of all the First Editions even the Seventh Printing.

Alcoholics Anonymous First Edition, Second Printing 1941 Big Book A RARE Book With Red Boards !

NY: Works Publishing Company. 1941 Hardcover, 400pp.

This is a RARE First Edition Second Printing Big Book with Red Boards, instead of blue. Personally I only know of six still in existence.

With 5,000 total 1st Edition, 2nd Printings, only 240 were produced with red boards; the remaining 4,760 have blue boards. These highly sought after collectibles were a result of leftovers from the Big Book First Edition First Printing.

Book is in Very Good ++ condition, with no writing or marks to pages. This book has been professionally rebound with its original boards. A blank page was removed from the back of the book (See supporting documentation below).

Included is a Hand Crafted, Archival, Acid Free, Protective Clam Shell Box & A Reproduction Dust Jacket with an acid free protective cover.
