Condition: Very Good


New York, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1929. First printing. Original Wraps. Very Good. A single complete original issue with covers and ads. Quarto, 10" tall, stiff green wraps, approx. 128 pages + lvi ads. A very good, clean, neat issue of the great political and literary magazine of its age, minor shelf wear and rubbing --covers are slightly oversized to the interior stock and thus the edges appear roughed, but this is true of all copies for the same reason--interior binding tight, paper lightly yellowed.
