The Mother of All Scores - Sharp Eye and Quick Hand Save the Day

Here's an amazing treasure I acquired over the weekend.  I could hardly believe my eyes when I picked up the book and looked behind the title page.  First printing!  Dustcover and edges nearly mint condition.  I saw the film for the first time back in 1977 and was, as a young pup, confused to no end (and my sister didn't bother to explain!)  At any rate, I picked it from the shelve on account of that memory and I'll never regret it as long as I live. Paid: $4.94  Listed in excess of $250.

I add this to other treasures such as A Rumor of War, by Philip Caputo.  Hemingway's seventh printing of A Farewell to Arms, along with first printings and autograph copies of major works by Paul Auster and Haruki Murakami.
