Gimpel the Fool and Other Stories

Illustrated by Phero Thomas Hardcover, Franklin Center, PA: Franklin Library, 1980. Near Fine. SIGNED by Isaac Bashevis Singer in blue ink. Signature page protected by a page of tissue paper. Book includes a special message to Franklin subscribers written by Singer. Illustrated by Phero Thomas. Part of Franklin's Signed Limited Edition series, sometimes called the 60 series because there were 60 books in it. I bought all 60 titles from a Franklin subscriber, who owned them since 1980 and never read any of them. I then sold this book to a local collector who very gently read the book once, placed it on his shelf, and then sold it back to me 5 years later. This series is Franklin's best work. The book is bound in high quality full genuine leather with 22kt gold trim. Other luxury features include gilded page edges, silk moire endpapers, a sewn-in satin bookmark, and archival quality paper that is smythe-sewn into the binding. This book comes with the Notes From the Editors booklet. The Franklin Library closed their doors and Singer has passed away. A beautiful collector's copy. Ships same or next business day well protected in a box with delivery confirmation. ; Signed by Author. [Item #62034]
