Lausanne, Switzerland: Marguerat, 1944. Octavo, pp (271), sewn, in white pictorial card covers printed in orange and black, with blank flaps. Soft vertical spine crease; very light dust soiling to covers; text paper a bit tanned as expected; else a fine copy, no previous owner marks. G&P D166, recording only a later printing of this edition. US first edition was in 1935. THE MOON IS DOWN was also published in a French translation in 1944, and G&P do not record any of Steinbeck's books having been published earlier in French.
