(New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1959). 210 x 133 mm (8 1/4 x 5 1/4"). 6 p.l., 3-241, [5] pp. FIRST EDITION in book form. (These stories appeared earlier in "The New Yorker.").

Publisher's original blue quarter cloth over paper boards, original dust jacket. The jacket frayed and with small chips at head of spine (without loss of lettering), slight fraying at corners, short tear at head of rear board, front panel with very minor abrasions, but bright and attractive nevertheless (the volume itself in fine condition). Quite a pleasing copy of the author's third book, a collection of 16 early stories, many set in New York City, including one of his best known, "Who Made the Yellow Roses Yellow?" Rarely seen in a truly fine jacket.
