First Printing. Octavo; publisher's cream linen, with titles stamped in black and red on spine and front panel; dark brown topstain; 768pp. Hint of sunning to spine panel, with previous owner's attractive bookplate to front pastedown; a very Near Fine copy, clean throughout, with the brown topstain rich in color and completely unfaded. Dustjacket is unclipped, with several tiny edge tears, minute loss to corners, and a subtle hint of sunning to spine; Near Fine. The present example lacks designer Ernst Reichl's name at the lower right corner of the front panel.
The author's most enduring work, a towering giant of 20th century literature that needs little explanation, and ranked at the top of The Modern Library's 100 Best Novels list. Slocum & Cahoon A21.
