The Osage are presently in the spotlight again with the release of the Martin Scorsese film, Killers of the Flower Moon. Slightly soft cover corner points. Front hinge a little floppy with hinge starting but paper splits reglued. Still a very good copy in vg dj with traces of edgewear. NOT price-clipped. Very scarce signed and in dj.
