The Hague: Mouton & Co. Publishers, 1957.
First edition, first printing. Original pale blue wraps printed in dark blue. Very Good withtoning, light soiling and a few small stains; bottom page corners bumped and former owner name and address written to half title page. 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."
