STEWART, George R.
[NY], [Random House], . Book Club edition. Stewart's classic novel of the 12-day development of a cataclysmic storm named "Maria," (prior to the adopted practice of naming storms, which was apparently inspired by this novel). A bestseller, and still in print 80+ years later, re-issued in the NYRB Classics series, with an introduction by Nathaniel Rich. This copy includes an offprint about Storm written by Henry Seidel Canby for the Book of the Month Club News. Foxing to spine; near fine in a near fine, lightly rubbed dust jacket. An interesting glimpse of a little-known publishing phenomenon -- the inclusion of the offprint -- and a book that anticipates the many novels of weather catastrophes that have emerged with the onset of climate change in recent years.
