San Francisco: McSweeney's. First printings. Very good / Very good. Item #83969
[Literary Journal] McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, 1998-2015. Complete run of this journal from Number 1 (1998) to issue 49 (2015). Every issue is a first printing and together with variants, fifty seven volumes, mainly octavos. Original publisher's bindings (some in wrappers, some in boards, several in special custom bindings- all as issued.) All issues are first printings and have all required ephemera, discs, or booklets. Issue 5 has four copies, each with a different variant dust jacket or cover. Issue 10 has 4 copies each of which is a binding variant including the rarest color (blue- issued only in 600 copies). Issues 11, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 26, 27, 28, 36, and 47 are in original shrink wrap. A generally fine set. McSweeney's was originally begun with the aim to only publish works rejected by other magazines or publishers. As McSweeney's flourished, however, that rule was soon abandoned, as established authors began submitting to them as a first choice. McSweeney's also became an important outlet for new and previously unpublished writers. All very good condition or better. Shipping to be determined of course. c 10.
