Maus II: A Survivor's Tale—and Here My Troubles Began
Notes: The second volume of Spiegelman's holocaust tale, probably the most critically acclaimed graphic novel. It was awarded a special Pulitzer Prize in 1992; to date, the only graphic novel so honored.
The first Maus graphic novel appeared as a paperback original in 1986, after having been serialized in RAW comics. When this sequel was published, Pantheon reissued the original Maus as Maus I in paperback and hardback and offered copies of Maus II in the same formats. Both volumes were also available in boxed sets. This is the stand-alone hardcover first edition of Maus II.
Edition + Condition: First edition (stated). A near fine copy but for fading along the top edge of the boards in a near fine dust jacket. This copy was inscribed by Spiegelman soon after publication, with a large drawing of the character Vladek. Promotional material for a reading at a Washington, D.C., bookstore is laid in.
Publication: New York: Pantheon, 1991.
