ERS-28. (galley proof) The Lighthouses of New England 1716-1973. c.1973. 340p. In printing and publishing, galley proofs are the preliminary versions of publications meant for review by authors, editors, and proofreaders. Galley proofs may be uncut and unbound, as is the case here. Sheets are approximately 24” long by 10” high and contain up to four printed pages for the book on each sheet, with spaces on each margin for corrections to be noted. Pages from the Introduction to last text page #340 are included. Following Mr. Snow’s approval of this proof, The Lighthouses of New England 1716-1973 was sent to print. This is an unprecedented find for collectors of Mr. Snow’s works! If you have this title in your collection, this proof is a MUST ! This is a one-of-a-kind item and the first that I have ever seen for Mr. Snow’s work. $165.
