Advise and Consent

Drury, Allen

Doubleday & Company

$5.75

"First Edition" is stated on bottom of copyright page. Price on dust jacket is $5.75 is present, but a higher price has been blacked-out, apparenly as a correction during the printing process. This may be a first edition point. Later printings have the $5.75 price without the blacked-out price, which leads us to conclude that the higher price was a mistake.

Advise and Consent book won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

This copy has a blacked out price of $6.50 between the "A.A.C." and the $5.75 price. It looks like it was done as a correction by the printer. We suspect it may be a first edition point. Comments are welcome.

I wonder who "Bill" is in the inscription shown. I have a first edition (no DJ) signed to a senior member of the US Senate, and although it is addressed personally (For Senator -----), the rest of the inscription is identical to that above.
