Very Good in Good dust jacket. B0007HLNW0. A clean, tight copy of the revised 1951 edition. I doubt that a perfect copy of this edition exists. This copy has a few issues which are probably often seen. The paper has toned significantly, although it is by no means fragile. The glory of the book is a long section of Benton drawings of depression-era Americans. This section ends at page 21 (the illustrations are not paginated), and there is a slight separation at this point--the book is structurally sound, but the web of the backing cloth can be glimpsed. This is not an impediment to reading pleasure. The jacket is intact, but with some chipping, especially along the top edge. A mylar Brodart cover now protects it. Fast shipping, with tracking number provided.; 9.30 X 6.10 X 1.30 inches; 324 pages.
