London: Collins, 1960.
First English edition. Very slight offsetting to the endpapers from the jacket flaps, two tiny spots on the foredge, else fine in a very near fine dustwrapper with several tiny tears, mostly on the rear panel. A very nice copy of Drury's first novel, a Pulitzer Prize-winner and perhaps the quintessential 20th Century political novel. Basis for the 1962 Otto Preminger film with a great cast that included Franchot Tone, Lew Ayres, Henry Fonda, Walter Pidgeon, Charles Laughton, Peter Lawford, Gene Tierney, and Burgess Meredith. Especially uncommon in this condition.
