The Closing of the American Mind

New York: Simon and Schuster, 1987. First Edition. Hardcover. Inscribed by Bloom on one of the front endpapers. Very Good in a Near Fine jacket, unclipped ($18.95), some scratches and small stains on the surface. Quarter white buckram with green paper on the boards, bumped at the corners, faded at the edges. Square, front hinge loose presumably from being signed, firmly bound otherwise, some stains at the top edge, clean internally. A true first printing of Bloom's surprise best-selling novel that bemoans the loss of reason in favor of "creativity." A scarce first made scarcer by the inscription. Very Good / Near Fine.
