Publisher's beige cloth pictorially stamped in brown across the covers and spine and lettered in brown on the spine. Top edge stained yellow orange. Pictorial endpapers. In the original color pictorial dust jacket with illustration by Elmer Hader with the $2.75 price and "First Edition" intact on the front flap. Minimal wear to the board edges. Spine slightly darkened. Minor age-toning to the textblock at the endpapers and edges. Expertly restored dust jacket in great condition, reinforced along the top and bottom edges and at the four folds. Expert restoration is only visible from the verso. All in all, a very good copy of this 1940 Pulitzer Prize winner.
"It is a very long novel, the longest that Steinbeck has written, and yet it reads as if it had been composed in a flash, ripped off the typewriter and delivered to the public as an ultimatum. It is a long and thoughtful novel as one thinks about it. It is a short and vivid scene as one feels it." (Peter Monro Jack, The New York Times Book Review, April 16, 1939)
