About this Item

Modern Library # 375. " Modern Library Edition, 1966" - stated on the copyright page. Don't believe everything you read, though - it spite of what it says, the book was published later than 1966. How do I know? For one thing, the binding type - 14 - was not used by the ML until 1969 (see Henry Toledano: The Modern Library Price Guide 1917-2000) and the rear panel of the jacket - style "o" - was not in use until 1967. What this is, is a very nice reprint: the book (full grey cloth, stamped in silver, plain tan endpapers, with a discrete stamped name on the front pastedown hidden under the flap) is crisp and fine, tight and sharp-cornered. There is a hint of (faint) foxing on the top- and fore-edges. The near fine pictorial jacket (a pilot being immobilized by the thumb of a giant hand coming down from above) is near fine. It is price-clipped, and has a shallow vertical crease on the front flap (a tiny one also on the rear flap), otherwise is fine: dark red and completely unfaded. In my opinion, the jacket design by Ted Bernstein is much more effective than that on the 1961 first edition (published by Simon & Schuster). The first Modern Library edition is not at all common - to qualify as such, the book must state on the copyright page: "First Modern Library Edition, September, 1966" - without this statement, it is a reprint.
