The Office.

by Fredric. Brown

Publication: 1993

First edition. Fine in dust jacket. Limited edition of 425 copies, numbered and signed by Philip Jose Farmer, author of the introduction. Original draft of Brown's only mainstream novel about his time as an office boy in Cincinnati during 1922-23. A fascinating and only slightly fictionalized account. A different version with toned-down language acceptable to New York publishers of that era, was published by Dutton in 1958.
