THE ESSENTIAL ELLISON, A Thirty-five Year Retrospective First Hardcover Edition is for Sale by Bast Collectible Books. The Nemo Press First Hardcover Edition from 1987 is in Mint Condition, the Dust Jacket covered in a Mylar Archival Wrapper,  and SIGNED by the multiple award-winning, controversial HARLAN ELLISON.

Ellison passed away in Los Angeles, at the age of eighty-four, two days ago on June 28, 2018. Not to put too fine of a point on it, but there won’t be any more SIGNED books. Our research shows that there are few SIGNED books of this rare Nemo Press first edition.

This is from Bast Collectible Books’ inventory (not our personal library) and has been offered for sale for eight years. The handsome hardcover book includes Ellison’s award-winning short stories, numerous photographs of Ellison, numerous line-drawings by Ellison, and is a whopping 1,019 pages long. Edited by Terry Dowling.

Offered at $175.00 or best offer. Please add $15.00 for media shipping, which comes to a grand total of $190.00.

Bast Collectible Books

Bast Collectible Books offers a short but growing list of signed first editions and other collectible books.

The Beat Poet books are from the private collection of a well-known artist who was attending the San Francisco Art Institute in the late Seventies when the most famous Beat poets lived in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood or made the pilgrimage there often. The poets gave their books to the artist and signed them for him.

Other selections are from book collectors with an extensive collection and who are willing to part with a few books.

We’ll be offering more selected titles as we scout them out and acquire them.
