Description

Rare Books: "The Abyss" hardcover with wrong credits on cover.

This is a first printing of what I believe is a book club hardcover with the original dustjacket that wrongly credits the author. (My reason for saying that it is a bookclub edition is that there is no price listed on the un-clipped jacket although it does not state that it is a book club edition.)

The cover credits read: "based on an original screenplay by Orson Scott Card. A novel by the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Author James Cameron". - The credits are reversed - Card is the author and Hugo winner who wrote this novelization of Cameron's screenplay.

I have found no other copies of this cover in any format on the internet.

The book is immaculate, certainly near fine if not fine. The boards are unbumped at the corners nor the spine, top or bottom. The gray labeling along the spine is unworn. No writing or names. Only tiniest flaws: a few specks on text block top edge, and one faint ~1/8" round smudge on text block deckled edge.

The paper dustjacket is preserved in a removable professional mylar sleeve. It is some mild edge wear, primarly at the spine top and bottom and less so at the flap folds. No writing or labels, no signs of tanning to white portions. The spine may reflect some slight fading, but it may also actually be the color scheme as original printed. A solid, very good to very good plus jacket.

The book arrived in great condition just as described. It was like new! Amazing to find that quality still out there in a vintage book. There are some great finds in this shop :)

Can’t wait to gift this to my friend who is probably the biggest Paul Newman fan! It’s unique and authentic.
The item was shipped out quickly and arrived fast, it was also packaged very well.
It was as exactly as described.
Will definitely look at this shop again for amazing items!

FAQs

In most cases, I can offer combined shipping discounts on multiple items.

You do not need to do anything. Place your order for your items, and when I am fulfilling your order, I will credit back excess shipping fees to your account.
If an item gets stalled in transit, let me know. I can open a case with USPS to track it down. Please allow 2 weeks for me to work with USPS to locate your package.

If a package is marked "Delivered" but you did not get it, let me know. I will call your P.O. to speak with the carrier directly or have them check the GPS scan on the package. If theft is suspected, I will ask you to file a Stolen Mail Claim with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and your local law enforcement. These records are essential to help catch mail thieves.

If an item arrives damaged, hold on to all packing materials. I require photographs of the damaged item and the packing materials to refund. I may ask that the item be returned to me at my expense.
If you notice the error prior to receiving the shipping notice, let me know ASAP.

Unfortunately, once a package is shipped out to an incorrect address, there is little I can do to get it back.

Please make sure your address within Etsy is correct before finalizing your order.

The item must be returned to me in the same condition as when we sent it - I.E - "as new", salable condition - for a refund. Return shipping at buyers expense.
