First appearance of the best-known novel by John Steinbeck (1902-1968), American writer and winner of the 1962 Nobel Prize in Literature. Viking produced a book to sit well in the hand; this copy has been read and part of somebody's library, but not abused. The type is crisp and readable.
First published April 1939.
