Light, general wear and aging. Interior pages have some toning but that is true of almost all Holloway House books. Book is still square and the binding secure. Appears unread. Red X remainder mark on bottom foredge. #BH-013. This was an unauthorized biography of Pryor. Grushenka is a supposed Rssian work of erotica, but that is disputed, some thinking that it is probably English. At any rate, Holloway House published the book as a kind of high class sleaze with and Introduction by a man with Ph.D. appended to his name to make everything seem scholarly. Holloway House first editions are notoriously tricky to identify. Most titles were republished many times. In titles from the 60's and 70's, the statement "First Printing" can occur in later printings as well as the first. True first printings are rather scarce and condition is often an issue. Holloway House began in the 1960's. It was the first publisher to capitalize on the urban black market. Besides Donald Goines, Holloway House published Iceberg Slim, Joseph Nazel, Robert DeCoy and many other African-American writers. Wanda Coleman, now called the "Poet Laureate of Los Angeles," was an early editor. The company is still in operation.; 16mo 6" - 7" tall; 317 pages
