    Publisher's beige cloth with brown wraparound illustration. Yellow top page edges have darkened considerably. Foxing present on front and rear pastedown with toning to the page edges. Cloth has darkened along the entire top edge and the bottom edge of the spine. Dust jacket flap has original "$2.75" price and "First Edition" printed in lower corner. Jacket is darkened along the spine, edges, and flaps; some light edge wear with two half-inch tears on the top edge of the front panel. Front and rear flaps have a few edge folds. There is one half-inch chip on the upper front corner. Housed in custom slipcase. None of these defects keep this copy from being a very good copy of this important work.

    Winner of the 1940 Pulitzer Prize, this brilliant look at the American Depression remains relevant today.
