New York: Scribner’s, 1950. First American Edition. A fine copy in a second state dust jacket with some tiny nicks but an unfaded spine. Often referred to inaccurately as a second “issue.” Hanneman calls this a state, and while the terms are often used interchangeably, their meanings are substantially different. A state refers to a change made during the printing while an issue refers to the sequence of publication. In other words, had this been an issue rather than a state, it would have been available for purchase later than the first. In the interest of honest and full disclosure, setting strenuous efforts aside, this cataloguer admits to the occasional past sin of using these terms carelessly.
