First edition of the author's second book of fiction, fine in a very good dust jacket. The book is tight and square, with just a hint of toning to the page edges. No names, bookplates, or other internal markings. The jacket has a little chipping at the top of the spine and along the top edge. There are 2 small holes at the front gutter/spine that do not affect any lettering on the spine. There is some other edgewear/tiny chips to the jacket. Although far from perfect, the jacket is clean and about 99% complete, and has the $3.50 price on the front flap. A most desireable copy of this scarce book. Groseclose A.004.
