Signed by Bill Wilson & GSO staff - Alcoholics Anonymous First Edition Big Book 16th Printing
This is a First Edition Sixteenth Printing of the Big Book with an original dust jacket. The book has been inscribed and signed by AA cofounder Bill Wilson and dated as 1960. Also included are inscriptions from several workers at the General Service Office.
The inscriptions are inside the front cover and on the first page of the book. There is also a piece of paper with dedication information that was glued onto the first page. There is no other writing or markings in the book.
This was the last printing of the 1st Edition big books. It was unexpected for this printing to be released due to plans for the 2nd Edition books release date in 1955. There was a need for more books to be printed ahead of the scheduled release because the 15th printings were selling so fast! There were only 15,000 16th printings released so there are not many available to find, especially in such good condition and with an original dust jacket.
This book is in very good condition. The covers look great with minimal wear. On The gold lettering on the spine is bright and looks great. The book is fully intact with no missing pages.
The dust jacket is in very good condition with light edge wear.
