City of Night, John Rechy
First edition, first printing of Rechy's groundbreaking debut novel. New York: Grove Press, 1963. A very good copy in an about very good, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is tight and sturdy, just a touch of shelfwear to boards and traces of spotting to top edge of text block, bookplate to front pastedown and erased pricing on flyleaf. Jacket shows some general shelfwear, a couple closed tears and some staining to spine and back panel, protected in archival mylar.
