The Hague: Mouton & Co. Publishers, 1957.
First edition, first printing. Original pale blue wraps printed in dark blue. Very Good with toning to wraps at spine and edges, light soiling, light wear at joints. Corners bumped. Previous owner name to first page, and ink notations to text to a handful of pages. An attractive copy of Chomsky's first published book, which changed the field of linguistics immensely. It's best known for the meaningless and yet grammatically coherent sentence "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously." Item #140939066
