About this Item

; 280 pp.; Wraps; VG; ".700 copies were bound in wrappers made up of a trial dust jacket for distribution as advance review copies.____ In all review copies examined the copyright notice is "SECOND EDITION", and this statement is seen in no other printing.____This was an error, rectified by a stop-press correct, early in the pressrun.____ It may be argued that the advance review copy, therefore, is the true first edition.____A piece of minor evidence exists to support the chronological precedence, the back cover of the jacket wrapper has Knopf's name in print rather than the facsimile signature as it appears on the trade issue jackets.__ Also, the wrapper is printed in black rather than red, as were later jackets -- obviously an earlier trial jacket."--Crane A.17.a.i (p.157)____ The paper over the spine is darkened and chipped. . . Crane=A17.a.i. [kwA_ 1st Ed. noisbn ]. Bookseller Inventory # 11848
