The Big Rock Candy Mountain [Advance Reading Copy]
Duell, Sloane and Pearce (1943), New York - 515 pages. Apparently, an advance issue of Stegner's first commercially successful book, which went on to sell more than a million copies in paperback. This copy consists of sheets from the first edition bound into the dust wrapper. Colberg, in Wallace Stegner: A Descriptive Bibliography, offers the opinion that the book was issued simultaneously in wrappers identical to the dust jacket (see A7.1.a). It is not clear if that copy had flaps, as this one does, or a price ($3.00, the same as the hardcover), as this one does. Regardless, an uncommon variant. First edition (first printing). Very good in wrappers (paperback). Some creasing at the spine; a few pages also creased from a binding error. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
