About this Item

This is the second impression of the first US edition of this classic and still engrossing story. This copy has seen some wear, but it is still viable and collectable. Binding is clean and tight, red spine and gray cloth, author's signature embossed in gold on lower front. Gilt lettering on spine clearly visible but slightly worn; slight fading at top of stain. Slightly soiled yellow topstain. DJ is price-clipped and has a small water stain at the bottom. Wear evident at top and bottom of spine and at corners. Gift Christmas inscription on ffep, plus capsule contemporary review from New Yorker tipped in: "the pace is relentless, the tone is dark and moody, the intelligence that informs it is sharp, cynical, and bitterly authoritative, and the writing is first rate." Additionally, there is an error in the type set on pg. 138 in which the last two lines are reversed. This point is not mentioned in McBride's points of issue. Apparently, this error was corrected in later printings but I don't know at what point that happened. Bookseller Inventory # 140417
