Inscribed on the title page by the author- "For Muriel Lockhart/ with good luck/ John Steinbeck/ 1946". Published by The Viking Press, New York, 1939.

With an early printing dust jacket, the number of which cannot be determined due to the lower front flap having been clipped. It is still from an issue printed in 1939-40 because of the $2.75 price on the top of the front flap. The dust jacket is in near fine condition. The panels and spine are extremely well preserved with the colorful illustration still vibrant. The book is in good condition. Hardbound in the publisher's original oatmeal cloth with maroon illustrations to the boards and lettering at the spine. The board corners are worn and the edges scuffed. Gentle sunning to the spine. Some browning at the gutters. Small indentations to the preliminary pages and first 45 pages of text or so. Tears at page 5. Page 23 has blue markings and notations.
