Tortilla Flat.
NY, Covici Friede, 1935 - NY, Covici Friede, 1935, first edition, wrappers. Softcover. The dust jacket is glued at the spine and then wrapped around the book, these wrappered copies were issued in advance of the hardcover, probably for review and/or promotion, this was Steinbeck's breakthrough book, it follows the antics of Monterey's Mexican-American paisanos, although it is actually an allegory story of the Knights and the Round Table, Goldstone & Payne A4a, illustrated by Ruth Gannett, this copy is an Association Copy being presented by Alice B. Toklas to an unknown recipient ("From Alice B. Toklas/Paris, March 1945), Toklas was the lifelong companion of Gertrude Stein, the first trade hardcover was one of 4,000 copies, this wrappered advance copy is one of just 500 copies, especially scarce with this association. Spine faded, else a very good, solid copy, scare in this format. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
