New York: Random House, 1951. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 5 5/8 X 8 1/2 Inches. 338 PP. Near Fine / Very Good +. Item #1045
Stated First Printing copy on the copyright page. Original price of $3.50 intact on front flap of dust jacket. An in-depth look at post-war Japan. From the Pulitzer Prize Winning author of Tales of the South Pacific. First state DJ as identified by the mention of Tales of the South Pacific on the rear flap. A remarkable copy in the original tan publisher cloth with title and decoration work to spine embossed in black and gold. Slightest hint of wear to DJ edges, although I must admit that I am very close to saying "Near Fine" even considering the age of this book.
