Battle Cry - Uris, Leon M - 1953. 
New York: G. P. Putnam's, 1953. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Inscribed by Leon Uris to the editor in chief of Putnam's, Ted Purdy, on the fly leaf: "To my buddy Craphouse Mouse Purdy, Lee Uris, Thanx (sic) for the most wonderful week of our lives." 1953, First Edition. Hardcover, blue boards with emblem and titles in red. Very Good in a Good dust jacket. Light wear to the spine ends; pages with very early signs of age-toning; clean contents. The DJ is faded along the spine and rear panel; the joint connecting the front panel to the inner flap is mostly split, but still attached; shallow loss to the spine ends; small abrasion to the bottom right corner of the front panel, probably from the removal of a label or sticker. This copy also includes a 15 page prospectus for the book that was put out in advance by Putnam's. A tremendous association and likely the best copy of this title that will ever be available. Uris' first novel -- a critical and commercial success.
