5.5" x 8.5", in illustrated wraps, book is still in the original publisher's shrink wrap. One of the labels says the book has been signed by Marlantes, then the shrink wrap was resealed. This version of the book was originally intended to be published by El Leon, but Grove Atlantic signed a contract with them to publish a hardcover version. This book then became the advance copy. Published in a limited number, book has a price of $50.00 on another sticker on the rear. Book is immaculate and has been opened only to be signed. Gift quality. Matterhorn is a terrific, towering novel. Marine Lieutenant Marlantes does for the Vietnam War what Lieutenant Sassoon did for the war in Flanders; what Sergeant Mailer did for the war in the Pacific; what Tenente Hemingway did for the war in Italy. He takes you there, shakes you, and never lets you go. Matterhorn will surely take its place on every armchair-warrior's bookshelf, shoulder to shoulder with Memoirs of an Infantry Officer, The Naked and the Dead, and A Farewell to Arms. —Prof Jon Stallworthy, Editor, The Oxford Book of War Poetry.
