NY: VIKING, 1962. FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE. HARDBACK.
The author's first and most popular, much acclaimed novel. First edition (first issue with "fool Red Cross Woman" on page 9 and "It's the plump Red Cross woman named Gwen-doe-lin..." on pages 85-86). An unusually tight, square, close to really fine copy in its very slightly spine-sunned (else quite beautiful fine) original dust jacket, the nicest we have seen. Basis, of course, for the now classic Milos Forman-directed 1975 film, winner of all five top Academy Awards (the first time this happened since It Happened One Night in 1934.) Priced accordingly.. FINE / VERY NEAR FINE. Item #10213
