And if you are of a certain age, you probably first read this as a Penguin Classic paperback in the sixties, and loved it!
Little did we know that it was so wonderful in spite of having major portions of it hacked off by the editor.
This is the full and complete version as written by Mr. Wright, himself. It is truly a historical printing that expands on some of the most important character development, and back-story of critical events in the previous abridged editions.
Additionally the price was only $3.90 for a "Brand New", very high quality softcover edition with beautiful photographic art, and a tasteful matte finish suitable for coffee table duty.
You cannot lose on this purchase!!
