Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach w. Photographs by Russell Munson

FIRST EDITION / 28th PRINTING [1972] THE MACMILLAN COMPANY

*Pre-title pages have been flat-signed with a great original doodle by author Richard Bach.

Hardcover with dust jacket in good condition.

Dust jacket is very good; clean and in tact with some light shelf / edge wear.  Foxing to front and rear panels as well as to underside.  Housed in protective mylar jacket. 

Book itself is good and reads nicely for the most part.  A few dark spots to blue cloth cover.  Some heavy foxing to endpapers and top of text block.   One or two pages of interior have sporadic foxing but the majority of pages are clean, white and read beautifully.  [see last few photos for the worst of it]


This is a story for people who follow their hearts and make their own rules...people who get special pleasure out of doing something well, even if only for themselves...people who know there's more to this living than meets the eye: they’ll be right there with Jonathan, flying higher and faster than ever they dreamed.

Jonathan Livingston Seagull is no ordinary bird. He believes it is every gull's right to fly, to reach the ultimate freedom of challenge and discovery, finding his greatest reward in teaching younger gulls the joy of flight and the power of dreams.  - Bookshop Apocalypse
