John Hersey - A Bell for Adano

The Modern Library, 1946. Hardcover. 12mo. Reprint. Grey cloth binding. Red topstain. 269 pp. New foreword by author. Good condition. Light wear along edges of boards. Cutesy bookplate stickers of former owner affixed to front endpaper recto and verso. General wear, smudging to textblock fore-edge. No markings to pages. Dust jacket is chipped along periphery, missing a 1cm chunk at the head of jacket spine and midway up front joint (see photos); nevertheless I defy any collector--no matter how fussy--to be embarrasssed with this beauty on his or her shelf. A Bell for Adano is book number 16 in The Modern Library series.
