About this Item

A nice copy of the first edition, first printing in a unique trial dust jacket (jacket is not priced). There is not total agreement on whether this jacket was produced for the second, fifth, or seventh printings. No matter which printing, though, this is a rare dust jacket. The dust jacket is the same rose-colored paper, the same decorations to the panels, same spine lettering, and the same title/author format as the marketed trade edition, but the text on the front panel under the author's name and all the text on the rear panel is completely different. On this jacket, the review on the front panel is from Wilbur Cross, the former governor of Connecticut. His review is continued on the front flap which also contains reviews from the Chicago Tribune and the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The rear panel has reviews from the San Francisco Chronicle, Laurence Stallings from the New York Sun, and The Atlantic Monthly. Now back to the book: Text is tight and clean. Appears unread or barely so. Labels to spine and front board are bright and unflaked. In a Near Fine - bright rose-colored trial dust jacket (in mylar) w/some very shallow chipping to spine ends and corners, spine lightly toned, a few tiny closed fringe tears to the bottom edge, mostly the rear panel, 1/2" thin open tear to rear panel top corner at spine fold. No previous owner's names. No remainder mark or spray. Not Price Clipped (unpriced). Not ex-lib. Not a Book Club Edition. Photos sent upon request. Accurate Descriptions/Quality Books/Unmatched Prices. Bookseller Inventory # 5081-TS
