Signed first edition of Plato’s Republic
Mofo Store Manager Kenneth Whirlow is pleased to announce the acquisition of a special addition to our store’s rare books selection. The book is a rare signed first edition of Plato’s Republic. Whirlow (acting on a tip from famous book scout Nico) was able to acquire the book from eBay of all places; the original listing follows:
In case you have trouble reading the text, it says “1st edition of The Republic signed by its author. There is of course a reasonable amount of wear and tear, (light highlighting and underlining, dog-eared pages, back cover missing, etc.), but it is in overall good condition considering its age.” We are pleased to have been the lucky purchasers of this unique item.
