About this Item

This novel by one of the best writers of all time continues the experiment begun in Mice and Men, that of writing a short novel having the time and place disciplines of the stage. The author, for the first time, has gone outside of America for his setting: any conquored country in any time. The book is a first edition, first state printing with the period between the words talk and this on p. 112 and no mention of the printer on the copyright page. Tightly bound, with the name Phyllis Child and date 1942 appearing in small handwritten ink on the front pastedown, all but the date year is obscured by the front flap of the DJ. There is some age tanning of the endpapers back and front and the rear cover of the DJ,directly attributed to the cheap war-time paper. The dust jacket is chipped at the spine ends and corners and shows edgewear at the folds but is not price clipped. The edgewear at the folds is due to the DJ being an unlaminated plain paper DJ and thus highly subject to wear. It now is protected by a mylar cover. Still a presentable copy of a hard to find book in the first state printing. Bookseller Inventory # 002332
