About this Item

An early printing, lacking the "First Edition" statement. A near fine book in a very good plus jacket with light edge-wear, very slight fading to the red lettering on the spine, but uncreased and unclipped (the price $2.75 remains on the front flap. Laid into the book is a piece of off-white paper, 4" x 3 & 1/2", from the Literary Guild of America, Inc. stating: "We take pleasure in presenting to you FREE of charge this current Guild Bonus Book, and predict that it will prove to be one of the most timely, most important books of the year. We feel sure you will enjoy it." So, I suppose technically it is a 'book club' book, but it certainly doesn't seem so: first, the jacket price ($2.75) is certainly right in line with the price of trade firsts at that time (maybe even a little high!). Second, the look, feel and construction of both book and jacket has nothing of the cheap or cut-rate about it, especially for a 'war-time' book. It seems possible to me that the Guild simply purchased early printing trade copies from the publisher to distribute as 'bonuses' or rewards to its members. Anyway, a nice, solid, probably unread book (a few of the pages are uncut). Bookseller Inventory # 1834
