About This Item

New York: Harcourt, Brace, & World, 1966. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine. 8vo., 274pp. Beautiful Stated First Edition of this landmark work. bound in gray cloth with spine titles in blue. Square and tight with some softness and a hint of toning to spine ends but quite minor. Pages 89-90 have a are stain, (coffee?), and a couple of additional very small spots to fore-edge. Still a very well-preserved copy. Equally attractive unfaded and unclipped dust jacket, ($4.95), has a touch of wear to the upper rear flap and a miniscule closed tear to the crown which is barely noticeable. Still fresh and bright with no creases, toning or chipping. Made into the terrific1968 film, "Charly", starring Cliff Robertson and Claire Bloom. Laid in is a clipped slip, like from a promotional flyer, signed by the author. A very sharp, collectable copy at a very good price.
