New York: Viking Press, 1938. Later printing. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. 8vo. Very good in good jacket. Jacket worn. Toned and rubbed, with loss to top of spine. Unclipped and still presents well. Book has offsetting, toning to endpapers. Minor shelfwear. Handsome vintage edition.

Third printing (stated) of the original edition of this classic Steinbeck collection containing some of his best-known work: "The Red Pony," "The Chrysanthemums." 303pp.

First published in 1938, this volume of stories collected with the encouragement of his longtime editor Pascal Covici serves as a wonderful introduction to the work of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck. Set in the beautiful Salinas Valley of California, where simple people farm the land and struggle to find a place for themselves in the world, these stories reflect Steinbeck’s characteristic interests: the tensions between town and country, laborers and owners, past and present. Included here are the O. Henry Prize-winning story “The Murder”; “The Chrysanthemums,” perhaps Steinbeck’s most challenging story, both personally and artistically; “Flight,” “The Snake,” “The White Quail,” and the classic tales of “The Red Pony.” With an introduction and notes by John H. Timmerman.
