New York: Simon & Schuster, 1961.


Softcover. Advance Reading Copy in printed wrappers. A little age-toning to the wraps, else a near fine copy of an uncommon advance issue of an American classic. Laid in is the seldom found printed card with the summary of the book and author biography. The card has a moderate stain. The author's first novel, whose satiric anti-war attitude set the tone for the 1960s, and whose title quickly became part of the language.
