GRAPES OF WRATH
New York Viking 1939 - First edition. 8vo, publisher’s original pictorially decorated tan cloth in original first issue dustjacket, with price and "First Edition" statement both present. 619. A handsome, bright and clean copy, the dustjacket whole and without tears, light evidence of shelving over time, the backstrip of the dustjacket just a touch mellowed by age, clean and bright internally, solid and very well preserved. AN IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION AND PERHAPS THE GREATEST BOOK WRITTEN BY THIS NOBEL PRIZE WINNING AUTHOR. John Steinbeck won the Pulitzer Prize for this novel of migrant workers in America. The story of the Joad family, simple people living close to nature, whose lives are disrupted by the malevolent forces of drought, market conditions and human creed. The novel graphically demonstrates the dangers to society when the vital like between rural man and the Earth is broken. The condition of this copy, in the pictorial jacket, is quite pleasing indeed. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
