New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1927. First edition. A bright, Near Fine copy of the book with the top-stain a bit dulled, otherwise very presentable. In a Very Good dust jacket with spine panel toned, minor chips and tears at the spine ends and corners and scuffing at the bottom of the front panel and on the flap, obscuring the "N" in Sons and the price on the front flap. With all first issue points, including unbroken font for page number 3, no printing on the bands of the dust jacket.
The 14 stories in this early collection “are as clear and crisp and perfectly shaped as icicles, as sharp as splinters of glass. It is impossible to read them without realizing that seldom if ever before has a writer been able to cut so deeply into life” (Time). Included are “The Killers,” “Ten Indians,” “Today is Friday” and “Hills Like White Elephants.” Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket. (Item #3940)
