On the Beach
Melbourne: Heinemann, (1957).
Hardcover. First edition. Neat owner's name front fly, dated in 1957, spine very slightly cocked, near fine in price-clipped near fine dust jacket. A classic post-apocalyptic novel and the basis for an excellent, if somewhat depressing Stanley Kramer film starring Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner, Anthony Perkins, and Fred Astaire in his first dramatic role.
