A FINE MADNESS.
New York: Putnam, 1964). Hardcover First Edition
First printing (first issue with error on pg 10.) Baker's first published book, described as a 'serio-comic novel' Winner of The New Putnam Award Novel. Considered by many as a modern masterpiece, this story of an 'aging, raging poet' was the basis for the Sean Connery movie of the same name. Rather uncommon in the first edition. Very near fine in a near fine dustjacket (remainder mark bottom edge, slight bumping to corners, crease to front flap of dj.) .
