The Hustler

New York: Harper and Brothers, 1959. First Edition. REVIEW COPY, with publisher's review slip laid in.

Basis for the classic 1961 film noir directed by Robert Rossen, starring Paul Newman, Jackie Gleason, Piper Laurie, and George C. Scott.

Near Fine in a Near Fine dust jacket. Book is crisp and unread with some sunning to board edges. Jacket is pristine, with only the slightest creasing at the spine ends and corners to note. A nearly pristine copy of the author's signature title, rare thus.

In a custom maroon quarter-leather clamshell box.
