The Natural. Bernard Malamud.

The Natural

New York: Harcourt Brace, 1952. First edition. Hardcover. 8vo. First edition stated. First printing of the author's celebrated first book. Source for the Robert Redford film of the same name and one of the all-time great baseball movies (and books). This is the variant in the red covers (they were also produced in gray and blue, but no known priority. It has been our experience, however, that the red cover version turns up less often than the others). A sound very good copy. Very slight shelf wear to bottom edges. No writing, bookplates or other flaws. Lacking the uncommon dustwrapper. Very Good. Item #27805

Price: $450.00
