New York: Viking Press, 1964. First printing. Hardcover. 628 pages. First printing, in first-issue jacket. Hardcover. Book is near-perfect but for a one-inch slightly sun-lightened spot at the upper right corner of the spine, corresponding to the jacket's missing piece of the same size. The price-clipped jacket also has some rubbing at the corners and extremities and two quarter-inch closed tears on the lower edge of the spine and front panels. Item #870
