First Edition/First Printing 1954. From the recently auctioned collection of M. B. Goldstone--a noted collector whose brother, Adrian (Homer)--was Steinbeck's bibliographer. A superb and near fine copy in an unclipped ($3.50) and near fine dustjacket. Light overall uniform age toning only. The dustjacket has some very slight chipping to the head and heel of the spine and a one inch closed end professionally repaired tear to the bottom of the front board--(very unnoticeable). First print copy with "June 1954" and a full photo of the author on the rear panel without ads. A truly handsome collectible copy. Clean and square, unmarked and with a bright dustjacket--Goldstone's penciled signature to the front free endpaper. More digital photos available upon request.
