The Broom of the System (First Edition).
New York: Viking Penguin, 1987. First Edition. Octavo. David Foster Wallace's first book, emerging from his undergraduate work at Amherst College. Published simultaneously in wrappers, this cloth version was issued in a relatively small print run of 1300 copies. Pages tanning as always, else fine in a near fine jacket, with minor discoloration to front joint. An exceptional copy of one of the most sought after debuts of the '80s.
