Grass Proof ? It’s a cat and mouse chase

Well here is a mystery I picked this up at the flea market today. It is a Gunter Grass paperback from 1963 but has no price and not the orginal cover so is it a proof ? It is similar to other proofs I get sent just missing the legal bits you have on them. It’s a mystery I have reviewed this on the blog but as I plan to reread tin drum next year may rereview this. But till then anyone know what this edition is ?

    I picked up an old ‘gold’ copy of this the other day. As I’ve only read ‘Tin Drum’ I thought this would be the best to read next.

    1962 was the first edition – yours is probably a later impression of the first edition
