The Day of the Locust

London: The Grey Walls Press, (1951).

Price: $1,250.00

Uncorrected proof of the first English edition. Unprinted wrappers. Pages a trifle browned, the author's name and title are written on the front wrap, a nice, very good or better copy. The timeless and quintessential Hollywood novel. West explores the frustration, violence, and savagery beneath the glamour and glitz. A very uncommon issue.
