Signed association copy, first edition "A Doonesbury Special - A Director's Notebook", by Garry Trudeau, published by Sheed, Andrews & McMeel inc in 1978.This large format illustrated cloth bound hardcover with original dust jacket chronicling the creation of the television special of the same name, is inscribed "For Richard Killberg with gratitude from Garry Trudeau, March 16, 1978" and also signed by the producer Faith Hubley (see images). Richard Killberg was a director and producer, and he may have either had an uncredited role in the creation of the television special or Mr. Trudeau and Ms. Hubley owed him thanks for some previous assistance.This is a "very good" vintage book covered in white cloth with gold embossing on the cover and spine. The embossing is bright and clear, not rubbed or faded. The board corners are sharp, not worn or bumped, the spine head and heel are minimally bumped. There is light tanning to the board edges around, and two small, approximately dime sized light spots on the back board edges, one at top and one at the bottom. The top one does not reach the interior, the lower one has a brown spot on the inner edge.None of the pages are loose, torn or folded and there is no writing aside from the mentioned inscription. The book is solid with tight hinges. The text block edges are somewhat tanned.The original dust jacket, now securely protected in a removable archival mylar sleeve is not price clipped, showing the original publisher's price of $12.95 inside the front flap. The back has a couple of 1 1/2" - 2" closed tears at the top edge with some accompanying creasing and little loss on one. No writing, some general edge wear and light tanning to white background. Not a perfect cover, but still very pleasant and presentable.Will ship fully insured and carefully packed.This will make for a truly unique gift for that Doonesbury fan in your life!
