First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by Steinbeck in execrable French: “For Georgio, Qui dit que La Roi c’est morte?”. Below Steinbeck’s is a subsequent gift inscription from Georgio re-presenting the book to another.

Octavo. Original yellow cloth-backed orange boards, spine lettered in bronze, boards patterned in blind, top edge orange. With the dust jacket. Illustrations in the text by William Péne du Bois. Spine slightly faded; an excellent copy in the jacket with faded spine and some nicks to extremities.
