New York: The Viking Press, 1959. First printing. Hardcover. 341 pp. Orange cloth covered boards quarter bound in durable tan cloth with titling in black, silver, and orange. First issue with yellow topstain. Jacket is either married or second issue since although it has the correct price of $4.50 printed on the front flap it has quotes about the novel from Granville Hicks and Paul Pickrel on the rear panel (and we have seen correctly priced jackets that only show three blurbs about Bellow as a novelist). Near Fine / Very Good+. Item #00002513
A near Fine book in a jacket with a tiny chip to bottom and a trace of barely perceptible sunning to the spine panel, along with some foxing to the reverse. A very attractive copy of Bellow's fifth book.
