Condition: Fine in Fine dust jacket

Doubleday, N. Y.. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 2003. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 0385504209 . This is the scarce first edition - first state hardcover of one of the best selling mystery/thrillers of this decade. Very difficult to find in this condition. This is the first state and has the correct points; on page 243 the word "scotoma" is misspelled as "skitoma", the original publisher's price of $24.95/Canada $37.95 is intact on the jacket; dust jacket reviews (5) by Nelson DeMille, Clive Cussler, Harlan Coben, Robert Crais, and Vince Flynn are on the back. On the publisher's page the 14th line of type reads "April 2003", 15th line reads "First Edition", 16th and last line of type has the number line of "10987654321". The only flaw to this book is a 2 inch scratch to the laminate of the dust jacket (does not go through the jacket) in the middle of the front side. The book is straight, square, tight, and appears unread. No names, marks, or writing. Dust jacket and book are in Fine condition. ; Standard Book Size. .

  "It is actually a real thriller dragging the reader into the world that Brown created. Astonishing. Also, you don't need any literary or any academic dowry to understand this work of art. You will envy the luck of Robert Langdon. "
