Random House, 1949. First Edition. Hardcover. Used - Good / Fair. Item #267344
First printing of the author's hard-to-find second work of fiction. Spine has a slight lean and endpapers are a bit toned. Original jacket is protected in Brodart but is well-worn with abundant chips and tears, most significant being the missing inch from the bottom inch of jacket's spine. Overall, though, a presentable copy of this distinctive and early Michener title.
