Nathaniel West - The Day of the Locust

New York: Random House/BMOC, 1989. Apparent facsimile of the first edition (which was originally published in 1939). Hardcover. 8vo. Red boards with goldenrod detail at spine with black lettering. 238pp. Black top-stain. Fair condition. Previous owner’s embossed ex-libris imprinted on the front and rear endpapers (see photos). Publisher’s original supplemental pamphlet featuring a new introduction by Robert Stone included. Binding is slightly rolled with minor separation of the text-block from the spine. The dust jacket is not priced and is in fair condition. Shelf-wear. Creasing at upper spine. Otherwise, a sharp dust jacket. At first glance, we assumed this was a First Edition Library facsimile first edition book that was lacking its slipcase. Upon further examination, this copy appears to be a book of the month club (BMOC) facsimile edition. Either way, there is no slipcase and this is NOT A TRUE FIRST EDITION. FACSIMILE BOOK/JACKET ONLY.
