First edition of West's third novel, an enduring work of social and political dark satire. This copy is in the rare variant green cloth binding, with stamping as in the more common light tan binding, except for a horizontal rule rather than publisher's name in the spine imprint. Formerly in the Holtzman collection, this copy is one of two in this binding cited by White, the other being in the collection of the late Allan Covici. WHITE 4. HANNA 3738.
