First edition, first printing. Original green cloth with gilt lettering to the spine and front panel, in the dustwrapper designed by Alan Haemer. A very fine, sharp copy, the binding square and firm, the cloth and gilt bright and clean. The contents, except for small contemporary gift inscription to the front free endpaper, are bright and clean throughout. Complete with the fine, bright dustwrapper, showing the merest edgewear. Not price-clipped ($2.00 to the upper edge of the front flap). An unusually attractive and well-preserved copy.
The author's seventh volume and the fourth to be awarded the Pulitzer prize. (Lentricchia A15).
