1948 THE NAKED AND THE DEAD Norman Mailer HC DJ Archival Clear Sleeve
1948 book club edition THE NAKED AND THE DEAD by Norman Mailer . Dust Jacke shows wear commensurate with age and has been placed in an Archival clear sleeve. The binding is sound and there aren't any obvious signs of inscriptions, marginalization, or dog eared pages.
In 1949 the book was banned in Canada and Australia purportedly for language. On the flip side, Mailer was mocked for his use of the word “fug” as a replacement for the more typical expletive. In Canada the book was banned by the Minister of National Revenue, who thought the book was “disgusting” even though he hadn't read it. If you are a collector of banned books this is one you want on your library shelf.
