Nothing to Be Frightened of | Comb Bound Proof (Jonathan Cape, 2007)

Notes on this edition: Nothing to Be Frightened of. London: Jonathan Cape, 2007. Pp. 250. 21 x 15 cm.

Uncorrected proof secured with plastic comb binding. Printed on 28 November 2007. In discussing this specimen with Julian Barnes, he suggested this form of proof would have been created in extremely limited quantities prior to the more traditional uncorrected proof. This may, in fact, be the only extant copy bound in this manner.
