Very Good / Very Good. Item #5690
New York: The Viking Press, 1958. First Edition. Octavo. 233 pages. Illustrated dust jacket with original "$3.95" price present. Brown marbled boards in mustard-yellow cloth with spine stamped in red.
Dust jacket is lightly rubbed along edges with one small 1/2 inch closed tear running vertically from top edge of rear panel. One pinprick at bottom of rear hinge. Spine is a touch sun-faded, but overall a remarkably well preserved jacket.
Light shelfwear to corners and spine ends. Red topstain is bright, with some faint smudging to rest of text block. Slight bow to the rear board, but otherwise secure and square in binding and pages are clean and unmarked.
A sound and collectible copy of this collection of Steinbeck's war journalism.
