About this Item

First edition, first issue with Rinehart logo on copyright page, jacket without the Rinehart quote. 8vo, original black cloth printed in white on the spine, printed dustjacket with Mailerís photograph on the rear panel. (8), 721 pp. Internally a very good and well preserved copy with only minor mellowing and some dusting to the page edges. The cloth good only with the spine panel loose from the front board but still whole and attached to the back, some wear to the board edges and corners, dustjacket in good order with very little wear or aging. NORMAN MAILERíS FIRST BOOK AND ARGUABLY STILL ONE OF HIS BEST. Long considered one of the best novels to come out of World War II, and the best to come out of America. It caused a sensation on its initial publication; critics compared the 25-year-old author to Tolstoy and catapulted him to instant literary celebrity. Mailer uses extensive flashbacks and brutally frank battle scenes to tell the story of General Cummingsí invasion of a Japanese-held island in the South Pacific. Believing that "the morality of the future is a power morality," Cummings runs into opposition from Lieutenant Hearn, who refuses to fit into the generalís "fear ladder.".
