First U.S. edition; first state. His first major novel, originally published in Paris in 1936. Advance review copy with review slip dated "Sep 14 1960" laid in. Conforms to the first issue points identified by McBride's "Points Of Issue" (1996): Front flap states "Lawrence Durrell's Black Book is the first piece of work by a new English writer …" not "T.S. Eliot said…" - Also with the year 1936 x’d out on the copyright page and replaced by 1959. A fine copy in very good d/w; just a hint of rubbing to spine ends and corners. Jacket is not price-clipped but has wear to edges and corners with several small nicks and creases.
