EAST OF EDEN
NY: Viking, (1952).
Highly desirable First Edition, First State ('bite' on p.281) copy of the iconic author's noted title. A near fine copy in a near fine unclipped dust jacket with some light wear to the extremities, a few minor spots and a couple small nicks to the spine ends. Basis, of course, for the now iconic 1955 Kazan-directed, James Dean-starrer (which won an Oscar for actress Jo van Fleet).
With its faults, a really nice example; much better than it sounds.. Item #10268
