About this Item

First Printing. 8vo: 182pp. Publisher's quarter-bound navy-blue cloth spine lettered in silver, turquoise cloth-covered boards, matching turquoise top stain, facsimile manuscript end papers; in pictorial dust jacket priced at $6.50, with correct publication code '1269' on front flap. Fine (probabaly unread) in better than Near Fine jacket lightly rubbed at spine tips, with long, closed, imperceptible tear to rear flap fold. Goldstone & Payne,A-44b. The author's posthumously published "day-by-day account of the writing of East of Eden. Not intended for publication and never revised in any way, the journal casts a flood of light on the author's mind and on the nature of the creative process. These letters [to Steinbeck's editor, Pascal Covici] are, in a sense, John Steinbeck's testament."

All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB0983
