John Steinbeck "The Grapes of Wrath"  First edition, second printing
First edition, second printing stated. 8vo in cloth wrapped decorated boards, decorated end papers, blue tinted upper text block edge, 619 pages.
This is a "good plus" or better vintage hardcover with an intact binding and hinges. The text block closes tightly and is square. The tinted upper edge of the text block is somewhat scuffed, the outer and lower edges are foxed (see accompanying images). The back upper corner is lightly bumped, all corner have wear at the tips. Spine is mildly cocked. No loose, torn or folded pages. No writing. End papers are foxed and show some ghosting of something. Lower board edges tanned front and back. Not perfect but still a really pleasing super early copy of an American classic!
