NY, Viking, (1963). Gold's first book, a well-received collection of stories; the entire rear panel of the dust jacket is a blurb by Lionel Trilling, recounting having first read one of Gold's stories ten years earlier when the author was still an undergraduate, and going on to praise the rest of this collection. Inscribed by Gold. Slight edge sunning to rear board; still fine in a near fine dust jacket with a bit of rubbing and a couple small edge tears. Uncommon signed. [#022378] $80
All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
