DESCRIPTION: This is a nice early edition of John Steinbeck's masterpiece, "Of Mice and Men," published by Covici Friede in 1937 and printed by The Haddon Craftsmen Inc. (Camden, N.J.). This book's notes indicate a copyright of 1937 with no mention of subsequent printings. After much research, I have been able to determine that it is a 1937 Book Club edition of "Of Mice and Men." It was published in the same year and by the same publisher as true "first edition" copies. However, it lacks the misprints that appeared in the true first edition and it was not printed by J.J. Little & Ives Co. If you are shopping for a true "first edition" copy, be cautious online. The 1937 book club edition is often mistaken for a true "first edition" by online sellers.

CONDITION: There is no dust jacket, but this book is in "good" vintage condition. There is significant discoloration to the spine and several stains on the the front and back covers. The pages show some yellowing due to age and wear at the corners. The binding is in good condition.

SHIPPING: This item ships to the mainland United States via Priority Mail. I have estimated for flat-rate shipping within the U.S. I always refund shipping savings if the buyer lives in a zone that enables me to ship for less money than estimated.

NOTES: Unfortunately, I am limited to posting five photos through Etsy. Do not hesitate to convo me if you would like to see more detailed photos. I am more than happy to send them! Please convo me if you are interested in purchasing more than one item from my shop for a combined shipping quote.
