Wild Animals US Proof


Peter Straub. Wild Animals. Putnam 1984. First Edition. Original Wraps. Galley / Proof. Very Fine. This an uncorrected proof of the US First Edition of this omnibus which saw the first publication of Straub's second completed novel "Under Venus" together with "Julia" and "If You Could See me Now." A lovely unread copy with flat uncreased spine showing some binding wrinkles to the head. Just a touch of edge wear to the edges of the green wraps and a notation "19, 1984" after the word "October" providing the date of publication on the front cover. Edges of text block ever so slightly shelf soiled. Extraordinarily scarce and often missing from even the most comprehensive Straub collections. A collectors copy which comes with a folded Putnam's press release.
