NY, Viking, 1961. His fourth book, third novel, a tale of an outcast seaman on a World War II troop ship. Inscribed by Matthiessen to his brother-in-law, Kennett Love. Love's ownership signature on front flyleaf and a couple pencilled notes, apparently in his hand, on the rear pastedown. A near fine copy in a very good, spine-sunned dust jacket with a couple closed tears at mid-spine. A nice association copy. [#016306] $750
