New York: Simon and Schuster, 1960. Stated First Printing. Bookplate signed by Bloch loosely laid in at front. Small octavo; [viii], 152pp. Illustrated dust jacket with $2.95 price intact; book in black and white boards with red lettering and ornamentation. Red topstain. Jacket a bit edgeworn, with a horizontal crease across bottom, adhesive residue from a strip of tape previously attached at center front, and some abrasions to verso of flaps where it appears the jacket had been attached to pastedowns. Boards toned and nudged at spine ends, with one small bump to front board at fore-edge. Abrasions to pastedowns corresponding to jacket flaps, with another at top corner of front free endpaper where perhaps an old price or ownership inscription was removed. Endpapers a bit toned, as are pages, moreso, throughout, though all unmarked. Binding is sound.
