Good. 081292343X For your consideration is a very well-preserved first edition copy of the title, "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, " by Barack Obama. Our book is graded Good++ in a Near Fine dust jacket. The dust jacket is nearly perfect with no marks or tears, just very faint edgewear (Now fitted with a new, Brodart jacket protector). The boards are nearly new with "sharp" edge-corners. The only flaw to the book itself is a very faint watermark to the top right corner of the front cover (the book would be graded Near Fine without the watermark). The textblock edges are unblemished with no remainder marks. The endpapers and text pages are completely unmarked. The binding is excellent with a straight spine. This first edition was published in a single printing by Times Books in 1995. This book will be stored and delivered in a secure storage box with foam padding. Published by Times Books, 1995; 403 pages; Hardcover binding.

Near Fine in Very Good++ dust jacket. True First Edition, First Printing of President Obama's first book in Near Fine Condition. Appears to be unread. Binding tight and square. Cover has good sharp corners. Clean text (no ownership marks and NOT a former library book). Dust Jacket in fully removable acid-free mylar sleeve. Issues: Title pages and first few intro pages have slight bend at top corner, not like a typical "dogear". They are hardly noticeable and wouldn't even show up in photos I attempted to take. Dust jacket has very slight creasing at upper spine end, no worse then what is typically seen of new books that have been on the shelve for a short time. These are very slight imperfections that are barely noticeable and do not detract from the beauty of this well cared for book, but it's my policy to be upfront so you get no surprises. Book will be carefully wrapped and insulated in shipping box. Will provide additional detailed photos upon request.
