Sweet Thursday

by Steinbeck, John

Condition: Good -/Good+

NY: Viking, 1954. Book. Good -. Hardcover. 1st Edition. A jacketed, hardcover first trade edition with considerable charm and some notable flaws. The sequel to Cannery Row. Red topstain and redlines on the title page are present. I am not aware of any points of issue per se. Copyright correct for Viking 1st, FP. Dust jacket's price largely eradicated (attempted, not very successful) but in place. The book club (this is not) lacks the red ink on the title page. While the book is essentially sound, various issue are noted, bumping of upper back board at spine, mild erasure scar/smudge first endsheet. Text unmarked, no dogearing, binding sound. The above not be construed as a list of all things right/wrong, but rather, a summary of the major issues. As skilled purchasers will know, Good- is a very low grade. Jacket, looking decent in it's mylar wrapper, has edgewear, short tears, other scars. Foto will be added by and by. *We feel that books offered for internet sale should be described thoroughly and accurately. Books listed by Brass Dolphin are so described, and graded, using the strict, traditional standards. For this reason, we have virtually zero returns.*.
