New York: Scribner, 1951. A First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #003209
Near fine and appears to be unread in a near fine unclipped dust jacket. Inscribed and signed by the author on the front end paper; "For Igor Kropotkin, with best wishes, James Jones". Igor Kropotkin was the head of Scribners Bookstores and a former President of the American Booksellers Association (as the ABAA was then known), thus an important presentation copy. Jacket with a closed tear with associated creasing on the bottom of the rear panel, repaired internally, else both the volume and jacket are near fine in all respects. (This volume is the first trade edition, not to be confused with the differently printed Presentation copies.).
