Presentation Edition. This is copy #726 of a limited edition. A fine copy in the original clear acetate wrap--a clean unmarked copy. Some very light age toning to the page edges--except the top edge where it is stained black--and not faded. The cloth at the head of the spine has loosened a bit---down a couple of inches--otherwise fine. From the Donald S. Olsen collection-a very nice collectable copy. The subject of this novel is McCarthyism and communism in the 50's--Shaw was blacklisted and eventually moved to Europe and spent the final 25 years of his life there where he died in Switzerland--although he maintained that being blacklisted did little to harm his career as a writer.
