Tobacco Road by Erskine Caldwell. Hardcover: Grosset & Dunlap, 1932; 241 pages. First Edition from Grosset following Scribner. Light brown blind stamped cloth boards with green titles and green top-stain. No dust jacket. Condition: Very good plus; a tiny bit of wear to tips and one corner lightly bumped (photo). Binding is tight and smooth. NO notes or writing – all pages are clean and crisp with a touch of age-toning to the edges. Minor shelf/edge wear; age browning to endsheet (photo). Text evaluation: "Writing in the brutal images of the life of his poor white people, Mr. Caldwell has caught in poetic quality the debased and futile aspirations of men and women restless in a world of long hunger which must be satisfied quickly if at all." -- Saturday review of Literature Priced well below most market offerings for this first year of publication edition.
