New York: W. W. Norton, 2003.
First Edition. Hardcover. Stated first edition, with full number line indicating first printing. A touch of shelfwear to unclipped dust jacket, else fine. Bound in red paper over boards, with spine backed in textured black and lettered in metallic red. Light shelfwear to bidning, and two faint, tiny stains to upper board. Binding is firm, sound, and still tight; pages appear unread. This is an excellent, highly presentable first printing of Mary Roach's bestselling history of the use and science of human cadavers, a modern classic of narrative nonfiction.
