Illustrated oatmeal/cream colored cloth over boards. "First Published in April 1939." on copyright page with no other printings mentioned. Ten word dedication has no further text below. Top edge of pages stained yellow as noted for true first edition, first printing. Battle Hymn of the Republic on endpapers, bright and clean. Hinges and binding are tight, textblock sound. Very light wear to exterior, corners and edges. Small stain at bottom corner of pages throughout, perhaps from the first (possibly only) reading of this very nice copy. A shame it is lacking the dust jacket. One of 50,000 from the first print run in 1939. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1940. Previous owner's tiny vintage Seattle nameplate sticker at bottom corner of FFEP: "Harry Hartman". Priced in pencil for $2.75 (the original price of book) at upper corner of FFEP.
