7 Hemingway, Ernest For Whom the Bell Tolls [First Edition Library Facsimile Edition]
Shelton, CT First Edition Library 1968 Facsimile Reprint Hard with Slipcase Very Good Very Good/Very Good Slipcase 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" Tall, 471 Pages 
This is a replica reprint of the first edition, from First Edition Library. Includes original FEL information card. The dj's most obvious flaw is the price is blacked out. Ouch! Perhaps someone did not want someone to think that they only paid $2.75 for it. It does have some light edge wear and edge creases and two small edge tears. Very light rubs and indentations. The slipcase has light wear at the corners and a few very light rubs and spots. Book is flawless and appears as new.
