New York: Covici-Friede, 1934

First edition. A fine, unread copy. With the blue top stain as called for, bright and unfaded. In a very good, unclipped dust jacket with gentle sunning to the spine. Two small chips and a closed tear at the bottom of the front panel, with unnoticeable tape reinforcement to the verso at three points. Still, a beautiful example of the jacket, presenting as near fine. One of only 4,000 copies printed, it would quickly become Steinbeck’s first success, both critically and commercially. Depression-era readers found escape in Steinbeck’s portrayal of the beauty of a poor and simple life. An especially attractive unrestored copy, housed in a custom blue on white box.
