First edition. Very good in good dust jacket with minor staining to inside (only) of psychedelic spiral design, black white and fuschia jacket. A light stain to top edge does not. Eggshell blue endpapers are pristine. And text is good+. Presentation copy; signed "...in friendship from the author, October 1971", on title page. Blurb on dj identifies the author as "educated in the Mid West and the East, and is now a therapist and professor at a West Coast University". The dj flap correctly describes the content of this homoerotic novel as: "a shocker, and a serious shocker. Its theme is homosexual love, and it is graphic and spares no holds"; adult and teen protagonists. Binding is sound, sturdy and square. Ships from Dinkytown in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
