Garden City: Doubleday & Co., 1954. First U.S. edition. The book was published July 15th--this date is written on the front endpaper and dust jacket spine in pencil. There are also pencil underlinings to a number of pages, so we assume it was a review copy. The book is fine with red top stain still bright; in dust jacket with wear and tiny chips on folds and spine ends and corners. Still, nicer than one normally sees for this large, heavy book (982 pages).
