First edition, first printing. Signed by the author. Publisher's original printed paper covered boards and navy cloth spine, with black titles on a paper label fixed to the spine, in acetate dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm, with a little bumping and rubbing to the extremities, the rear board lightly marked. The contents, with light spotting to the closed text block are otherwise clean throughout and without inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the acetate dustwrapper that has a few short closed tears to the spine head and one to the flap fold.

Issued in a limited edition of 400 signed hardcover copies, this example is numbered 316 and signed by Charles Bukowski alongside a typical self portrait doodle on the limitation page at the rear. A collection of 36 semi-autobiographical short stories about writing, drinking, women and gambling.
