THE PASTURES OF HEAVEN

John Steinbeck

5 x 7 1/2 in. 294 pgs. Book was remaindered and Robert Ballou bought up the copies, then tipped in his own title pg with copyright info in the same font. The line where a razor was used to cut the original away, and where the Ballou pg was glued on, is quite clear. Green cloth with gilt lettering on cover and spine (Robert Ballou at base of spine. Upper edge of text block tinted black. Condition is GOOD ; no wear to corners or edges, covers very clean, spine slightly sunned and darkened. The lower front has a whitish spot across it, most likely from water, which is not evident in the text, which is verty clean. Then some damn mouse chewed a 1/2 inch crescent out of the edge of the lower front cover, gnawing a tiny bit of the pgs up to pg. 6. This rare first with the Ballou title pg is really in pretty nice shape, and is a prize for any collector of Steinbeck. And shelved, the tiny chewed area will never show. Fiction. RGR

NEW YORK: Tower Books World Publishing Co., 1946. First Edition . Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. First Edition First Printing 1946. A nice copy of the later issued Tower Books edition--this is a first printing with the usual page darkening and with a a mild stain to the back board about an inch in diameter. The dustjacket is unclipped and has mild edgewear only with mild aging--still a very nice pictorial dustjacket from a later issue. The original first printing of this Steinbeck novel was in 1932--obviously among his first works as an author. Still a collectable copy for the Steinbeck enthusiast.
