    There's No Business Hardback, Signed & Lettered "Q" 17/26 (Black Sparrow Press, 1984) Condition: VF/NM. This is a very cool, very scarce, limited first edition hardcover from underground artist Robert Crumb's Black Sparrow Press run in the early 1980s. These ultra-rare lettered copies virtually never surface for sale - after all, there are only 26 of them! This copy is signed by both Robert Crumb and Charles Bukowski, and is letter "Q" of 26 lettered copies. Bukowski's signature alone has been selling for over $300! Complete, with the original publisher's acetate dust jacket, this is a handsome item signed by the pair of visionary artists who produced it. Make it your business to own this copy!
