Harper & Row "The Bell Jar"
This is the Harper & Row, First edition of the U.S. printing of "The Bell Jar." My first copy was a bruised up hardback I picked up in a used bookstore. This one is one of my first purchases from ebay (circa 1998) and the cover is in such good shape I initially thought it might be 'copy.' But that thought passed and I'm pretty sure it is all legit and an excellently preserved book and cover. I'd not wanted to have to comment on my digital pic taking abilities, but short of removing the mylar cover, I could not prevent a flash-back. What looks like it could be damage is merely the photographer's lack of skill
