Garden City: Doubleday, 1978. First Edition. Fine and unread in an about Near Fine dust jacket. Book has a tiny bump at the bottom of the front board, else book is exceptional with spine gilt extremely bright and no evidence of wear. Jacket has a few short closed tears to the spine ends and a short snag to the bottom rear flap fold.
A lovely copy of a book that is a prime example of the poor manufacturing employed by Doubleday in the 1960s and 1970s. Generally encountered badly worn, collectible copies are difficult to find. Basis for the well-received 1994 mini-series with Gary Sinese, Ruby Dee, and many others.
