The Sheltering Sky.
London, John Lehmann, 1949
First edition, first printing; 8vo; previous owner's initials to front free endpaper, last leaf with chip to fore-edge from clumsy opening presumably at time of publication, overall internally fine; publisher's grey cloth, slightly sunned at spine ends and corner tips, dust-jacket by Fred Uhlman, slight wear to fore-corners of front panel and spine ends, overall a very good, bright example.
