What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Original Binding, Proof Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, Uncommon

An advance proof copy of the debut novel of American author and short-story writer, Jean Stafford.

Bound in the publisher's original paper wraps, with a 'Review Copy' stamp to the front cover.

This insightful novel tells the story of Sonia Marburg, a young woman from a working-class background from the outskirts of the city, trying to achieve her dream of integrating into the wealthy Bostonian society of Beacon Hill.

'Boston Adventure' was the inspiring first novel of Stafford, dealing with the struggles of the class system in America.

Condition

Bound in the publisher's original paper wraps. Externally, very good, with light creasing and the odd mark. Light age toning to wraps, with 'Review Copy' stamp to the front cover. Front hinge is tender, with a tear to the tail of the front joint. Internally, firmly bound with bright, clean pages. Very small closed tear to the title page.

Very Good
