Caine Mutiny. A Novel of World War II (signed)
New York: Doubleday & Company, 1952.
First illustrated edition, signed by author. Illustrated by Lawrence Beall Smith. This edition was chosen by Doubleday to be distrubuted as Christmas gifts to booksellers and they asked that Wouk personally sign these copies. Signed by Wouk on first blank. Book is in very good condition with mild edge wear to the cloth blinding. Embossing on the spine is still clean and bright. Internally clean with no foxing. Dust jacket several small chips along the edges with one larger chip at the top right corner of the front panel taking two letters of the title. Color has evening darkened across jacket. Still, an impressive example of this Pulitzer Prize winning novel. vg/vg-.
