A superb copy of the limited edition of only 500 copies--this is copy 152 which originally belonged to famed collector Adrian Homer Goldstone. Goldstone's bookplate is attached to the front pastedown. Goldstone was Steinbeck's bibliographer. This limited edition copy is signed by Smith, the author, on a special limitation page. A unique book which is enclosed in it's own foldover slipcase. Beige with gilt lettering and decorations to the front board and spine. Solid gilt top edge and uncut foredge and bottom edge. This copy is illustrated by famed illustrator F. C. Yohn-with a frontispiece of the author and 11 illustrations in total. 159 pp. A very scarce copy of the limited edition and even more so because of the Goldstone bookplate. Very good condition with some darkening to the spine and overall uniform age toning. There is an "American Red Cross" ink stamp printed on the front endpaper. Dustiness to the page edges and a very slight spine lean--otherwise a superb copy.
