Book Condition: Very Good
First Edition/First Printing 1960. A very good copy of a rare first printing in a likewise very good dustjacket. This copy signed by the Pulitzer Prize winning author. Styron's 3rd novel written before "Nat Turner" and "Sophie's Choice". This copy is very good with a slight cock to spine although book still lies flat when opened in the middle. Otherwise clean and unmarked throughout. The dustjacket is price clipped and slightly sunned on back cover around edges and surrounding pictorial portrait of the author---and a little edgeworn with two minor small closed end repaired tears at top of spine---otherwise very good and collectable. Styron is proving to be one of America's most accomplished novelists and his recent death in Cape Cod has only brought his work even more to the forefront of American Literature. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for "Confessions of Nat Turner". "Set This House On Fire" takes place in Sambuco Italy and is a classic novel of "Good vs. Evil".
