Description

    Fritz Leiber Author-Corrected Paste-Ups for Swords Against Death. 221 quarto pages pasted on to 8.5" x 11" sheets. Annotated and signed by the author. Numerous hand corrections, edits, and printing instructions. Circa 1970. Pages toned and well thumbed with some chipping along the edges. Very good condition.

Chapters one and nine are ribbon copy typescript pages instead of the pasted-ups. Swords Against Death, the second book in the Saga of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, was published by Ace Books in 1970. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
