Description
Gesigneerd; Willem Elsschot - Verzameld Werk [met opdracht] - 1957
Literature - Quantity: 1 - Signed by author - Book

The book contains the following dedication from Elsschot:
“Aan Maria Duysan / met hartelijke groeten / Willem Elsschot / 25 Juli 1956”

Condition: red cloth binding with dust jacket. The dust jacket has a few small tears. Endpapers and edges are somewhat discoloured / stained. The ink that was used is somewhat smudged, but I find that quite charming. This is the 2nd edition published a few months after the 1st edition. Otherwise excellent copy.
