New York: Philosophical Library, Inc., 1959.
First English Language Edition. Hardcover. 8 3/8" X 5 5/8". xvi, 240pp. Rather heavy wear to unclipped dust jacket, with closed tears to edges, open tears to head of spine and corner of rear panel, 1 3/4" X 1" open tear to tail of spine, and mild foxing and sunning. Rust colored cloth over boards, with spine lettered in black. Spots of heavy rubbing to spine, else only very light shelfwear to binding, firm and sound. Pages are clean and unmarked. A solid and presentable first English language edition, in admittedly worn but present dust jacket, of this seminal linguistic work by Ferdinand de Saussure (1857-1913), the semiotician and linguist's most influential work. Very good / good. Item #4475
