Fante Fante Fante


lothario speedwagon
these are all fante books from john martin's collection. they are all black sparrow editions, and all of the numbered copies are "#1," which is pretty neat (although some cynical people might say that that's not any more rare than any other number, but still). all are in fine condition except for some foxing to the top of the page block on most of the books (except the newer ones). PM me or post if interested.

If I recall, those are all published after Fante's death, so not signed if numbered\lettered? Or am I wrong about that?

Ah ok, thanks for the clarification. I'm still considering some, but... between you and Jason, I'm gonna be in the poor house :p
