New York: Reynal and Hitchcock, 1947. First American Edition in the true first issue jacket. Precedes the UK edition.
Lowry's masterwork, an expressionistic novel of the final, desperate day of a former British consul drinking himself to death in Mexico. Basis for the John Huston film featuring Albert Finney (who was nominated for an Oscar) and Jacqueline Bisset.
Near Fine in a Very Good plus dust jacket. Mild toning and foxing to the page edges. Jacket has a hint of rubbing at the spine ends and corners, with a couple of tiny closed tears, else quite bright and attractive.
