Or I should say *almost* clean. There's the Book Rack stamp on the front page, and then there's some writing on the title page:
for David FieselmanLike, really?
with all best --
on our trip to the Atchafalaya
It could be a fake, of course; McPhee's 1987 article on the Atchafalaya is well known, and while the autograph looks real, well, other people can google stuff too. But kind of a pointless fake, no?
There's a David Fieselman practicing medicine in New Orleans, and another D.F. in Madison, MS. I'm half tempted to call one of 'em up and ask did they really mean to get rid of their book.
