A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN

New York: Harper and Brothers, 1943. First edition. A notoriously scarce title in dust jacket, let alone one in this condition. The story involves an Irish-American family in Brooklyn during the first two decades of the twentieth century, split into five "books," each covering a different period in the characters' lives.

Basis for the 1945 film directed by Elia Kazan and starring James Dunn, Dorothy McGuire, and Joan Blondell.

Easily Near Fine in a stunning, about Fine dust jacket. Extremely faint vertical fold crease along the rear flap fold. Of the few jacketed examples we have seen over time, far and away the best.
