Jerry Weist Estate: R. Crumb Checklist Don Fiene 1981 Presentation Copy Signed For Sale
R. CRUMB CHECKLIST by Don Fiene (Boatner Norton Press 1981, 1st ed hc). FN in FN DJ. OK, here is a unique item, to be sure! This is one of only FIVE presentation copies of the rare hardcover edition of this book (which is common in paperback form). What does this mean? It means that the book is in perfect shape AND is the presentation clamshell case (which is also in FN). AND the book is SIGNED BY CRUMB (and dated!). AND a handwritten letter from Crumb to Jerry dated June 4, 1981 is tipped in, discussing the permissions needed for the book. AND an index card with hand written note to Jerry about permissions (expressing amazement that anyone would buy such a book!). AND the permission form itself, SIGNED by Crumb and witnessed by Aline Kominsky Crumb (each signed next to little stamped figures!). This is, by far, the MOST DESIRABLE COPY OF THIS BOOK (probably in the world). Yes, 1/5 presentation copies, signed, with 3 signed documents, 2 being completely handwritten by R. Crumb. HOO HAH! P.S. I am offering the ORIGINAL cover paste-up art in another lot this sale. Buy both & use as bookends!
From the estate of my dear friend Jerry Weist (1949-2011)
I am proud to be able to help out Jerry's family by selling part of his massive collection over the next few months (OK, that's not true. It will be over the next few years! There is SO much wonderful stuff). Those of you familiar with Jerry know that condition was very important to him, as was having SIGNED books, so look for lots of high grade material in my sales for the forseeable future.
Look for the 3rd edition of his Comic Art Price guide, out now.
Priced to sell with ! All items shipped USPS Priority Mail in the USA. Will combine shipping on multiple lots!
