The Day of the Locust. Nathaniel West.

The Day of the Locust

New York: Random House, 1939. Cloth. The 1939 stated 1st printing of this, Nathaniel West's 3rd published book (of only 4 in total). A solid copy, firmly-bound and quite presentable. VG in its red cloth, with fading along the spine, light spotting and wear to the panels and, internally, light offsetting at the pastedowns and endsheets. Tiny year-of-publication inscription at the front free endpaper's top-edge as well. Octavo, one of the great (if not the very finest) early novels taking on Hollywood and its perverted star-system. Very Good. Item #13850

Price: $150.00
