East of Eden
By John Steinbeck

First edition, first impression (The Viking Press, 1952). First state with ‘bite’ present on page 281. Considered by many, including the author himself, to be his magnum opus. The basis for the famous film adaptation in 1955 starring James Dean.

Publisher’s original green cloth with black lettering to spine and upper board. Some pushing to spine head with a couple of small areas of inconspicuous and faint water staining to edges; slight darkening to top and bottom edge of lower board; contents nice and clean and free from names or inscriptions. The original and unclipped dust jacket has some isolated rubbing and chipping to the extremities with a few small closed tears. A very good copy indeed.
