A tight and clean totally unmarked copy in as new condition--the dustjacket is price clipped or would also be fine. Stories and articles of Michener included in this little book "Tales of the South Pacific" "Return to Paradise", "The Voice of Asia" and the complete text of "The Bridges of Toko-Ri". In the forward by Michener--he contemplates the publication of his first book, "Tales of the South Pacific" interestingly relating how neither he nor the publisher thought the book had much chance at success--where the cheapest quality paper and binding was used as well as the close-knit type set to save space and paper. Michener states that by chance one reviewer gave it special attention and the book subsequently won the Pulitzer Prize--even-though it did not meet many of the committee's rules to apply. Michener, astonishigly wrote that first book when he was already 40 years of age--which relates to us just how prolific a writer he was. This title is rare to find signed--a great addition to any Michener collector's bookcase.
