New York: Pantheon Books, 1962. Book Club edition. Hardcover. SIGNED. 591pp. Octavo [22 cm] Red cloth with a gilt stamped title on the spine and black ink stamped designs on the spine and front cover. With bumping to the extremities, and thin faded strips at the foot of the spine, and along the bottom edges of the covers. The dust jacket has a number of shallow closed and open tears in the edges, and the top fore edge corner of the front inside flap has been clipped (maybe an attempt to conceal the fact that it is a book club edition). Very good / very good. Item #48619
Signed by Günter Grass on the half-title. The author's first novel, and probably the best known work by the Nobel Prize-winning author.
