much shelf wear to tips, corners and edges of book and jacket, offsettings to endpapers, top edge dusty; the jacket while priced and intact is soiled with creases and much rubbing to the rear panel. Scarce first American edition of this third novel in the series A Dance to the Music of Time. The first two titles were brought out by Scribner's, the next nine by Little Brown. No statement of edition or printing. Having examined numerous copies of this title one can only conclude that FS&C, having gone through three name changes in the first three months of 1955, published this and other titles with no consistent statement of edition, see Zempel & Verkler, page 202. Lilley cites some confusion about the actual publication date. The 1996 history of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, Fifty Years, page 543, states that the book came out on their Winter-Spring 1956 list. Lilley A.11 (d) 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Hard Cover. Most items ship with free delivery confirmation, electronic tracking and jacket protectors (generally over $10.00) if applicable. Clean recycled packing material will be used when possible.
