Modern Library, 1953. Hardcover. Very Good / Good. Item #048978
Modern Library No. 170. Spring 1956. Pages crisp and clean except for modest toning around the margins, one small drip spot on the top edge and one on the right edge of the page block, and a large bookplate on the front pastedown; binding square and secure, hard cover softened and modestly worn at corners and spine ends, otherwise excellent. Dust jacket bears fading along the spine, shallow open tears with small material loss at corners and spine ends, a yellowed handling print at the left rear, and lines of creasing and surface scuffing at left and right of front and rear, as well as a corner clip; nonetheless striking, now protected in a clear sleeve. vi, 464, pp. The author's introduction relates the genesis of the novel, which did not include Huey P. Long. Do you ever wish you could go back in time, shake New Historicism by the lapels, and tell it that it had better do something about its lazy followers?
