First Lion Books printing.
"Read it – IF YOU CAN!" (rear cover)
Jackson's story was already infamous by the time it appeared in this Lion Books edition, having garnered more letters upon its publication in the NEW YORKER than anything had before. How to stir up still more extreme reactions? How about a décolletage stoning? While silhouettes of Tessie Hutchinson's neighbors throwing stones hint at the actual plot of the titular story, Herman Bischoff's cover suggests something rather more salacious than shocking.
New York: Lion Books. Lion 14, (1950). 6.25'' x 4''. Original color pictorial mass market wrappers (25c), cover art by Herman Bischoff. Green endpapers. 238 pages. Only lightest edgewear.
