Binding Hardcover; 1st Printing
Notes 1st edition/1st printing. Author's first book, and scarce with the dustjacket in any condition. 9 stories. This book is clean, straight and tight with no handwriting in it. It has 1 slightly bumped corner, a touch of darkening to spine ends, 2 tiny, faint page spots (facing - got onto both pages) on the lower front end pages. There are two dustjackets which come with this book. Both dustjackets are price intact and are the same first issue with only the full page blurb on the back by Harriette Simpson Arnow. The first dustjacket has a small piece of clear tape on 1 edge tear, has several other (untaped) edge tears and several edge chips (larger ones upper back and upper spine), a crease line lower front, the spine is sunned, and a touch of rubbing/soiling. The 2nd dustjacket has been trimmed about 1/4" (evidently was in the old style mylar cover with brown edges that stick to the DJ edges), which is a shame as it is a lovely dustjacket. It has 1 long, completely closed fold tear but is otherwise bright, clean and undamaged. A very presentable copy of a hard to find in decent condition book with your choice of which DJ to use.
