London: George Allen & Unwin, 1920. First Edition. Hardcover. Inscribed by Dos Passos on the Front flyleaf, with also, glued to the second (blank) flyleaf, is an 11-line handwritten letter to the same collector agreeing to sign some of his books, and instructing him where & when to send them (in Provincetown). The book itself is a fine copy, and apart from one small edge-tear to the fore-edge of page 19/20, and some light fading to the spine edges, has almost no wear. This is thanks to a beautiful copy of the original dust-jacket, which has only the slightest wear to the extremities, but is otherwise bright and intact. This is the first issue of the book, with the word "flat" obliterated on line 32 of page 35. Highly desirable copy of this highspot - Dos Passos' first book - based on his experiences in the Great War.
