1981 - Men of Men

William Heinemann published the first British edition, and Doubleday published the first American edition.

William Heinemann reprinted Men of Men a few times: in 1981 (3 times in the same year as the first printing), and 1989 for a Uniform Edition.

I own an exceedingly rare Uncorrected Proof copy

I own 3 copies of the first printing of the British first edition. Wilbur signed all 3 of my copies.

The very copy that Wilbur gifted to his mother-in-law is now in my collection. "Mom" is Danielle's mother.

I have not seen another signed copy where Wilbur included a date, making this copy even more rare that it already is.
