A beautiful copy. Fine in dustwrapper with light wear at the crown and base of the spine. Printed on the rear panel: the famous claim - 'His rooters are a Who's-Who of two continents' and they include Stefan Zweig, T.S.Eliot, Claude Rains, Djuna Barnes, Andre Gide, William Saroyan, William Steig, Rockwell Kent, 22 other contemporary notables listed - needed as much by the author for his self-image of serious novelist as the publisher to promote the book.
