1 Cheever, John The Wapshot Scandal
New York Harper & Row 1964 Cloth 
Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Bound in full light blue cloth. The spine is stamped in black and gilt. Gold endpapers. 309pps. This is likely a second or third printing (date code E-0, May of 1964, on the copyright page). There are a couple of small rubs to the front board, otherwise clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. No reading wear or previous owner's markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has mild rubbing at the head of the spine, a couple of very short closed tears at the top of the rear panel and an indentation, unobtrusive (no ink loss), on the front panel; no chipping or soiling. The original price (4.95) is intact on the front flap. An excellent copy.

"...The Wapshot family settled in the little village of St. Botolphs in the 17th century. Mr. Cheever rings up his curtain on St. Botolphs on a snowy Christmas Eve in the second half of the 20th. With these traditional matters dispatched, the affairs of the Wapshots carom around the United States and Europe with considerable velocity, at times veering without warning into outbreaks of wild hilarity. The curtain comes down on another snowy Christmas, but, in the time between, all of the cast have gotten themselves into hot water..."
