    Tom Clancy: Signed First Edition of The Hunt for Red October (Annapolis, Maryland: Naval Institute Press, 1984), first edition, 387 pages, red cloth with silver spine titles, 8vo (6.25" x 9.25"), dust jacket. Inscribed and signed "First Edition Tom Clancy" on the half title page. The rare first edition of the novel that introduced a mega-selling author to the reading public. The book is in very good condition, with foxing to the textblock fore-edge and bottom edge wear. The dust jacket is about very good, with a small closed tear at the spine tail, a small chip at each spine end, tape damage at the bottom front panel, and a small bit of wear and red staining at the top right of the front and rear panel. A handsome copy of a rare modern first edition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
