James A. Michener - Sayonara

New York: Random House, 1954. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. 8vo. 243 pp. 3/4 black cloth binding. Dark topstain. Very good condition. Clean covers and pages. No markings. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has some faint patches of discoloration on back side (see photos) but still very impressive. Sayonara was James Michener's sixth book and a big success. The mediocre Hollywood film adaptation starring Marlon Brando was less successful.
