    Rare Steinbeck Advance Reading Copy

    John Steinbeck. Tortilla Flat. New York: Covici-Friede, [1935].

    Advance reading copy, reportedly one of only 500. Octavo. 316 pages.

    Publisher's square binding with stiff cream covers. Laid into dust jacket that has been glued at spine. Fading and darkening along spine with some darkening to all edges. Lightly foxed along top edge. Pages mildly toned. A very good copy of this scarce and fragile edition.

    One of Steinbeck's great "California novels" about a group of Hispanic locals living near Monterey in an area known as Tortilla Flat. This work was his first critical success, winning the California Commonwealth Club's Gold medal and was adapted into an excellent film version in 1942, starring Spencer Tracy and John Garfield.
