About this Item

SIGNED and inscribed by Bromfield on the blank leaf following the copyright page. First Edition Stated, First Printing. 597pp. Publisher's black cloth with gilt stamped titles to the front board and spine; this hardcover binding is tight and square with some mild rubbing to the spine gilt. The interior (made up of map endpapers) is clean except for previous owner's small name label on front fly. The text is clean and unmarked with light brown staining to the bottom of the pages that does not reach the text. The superb dustjacket remains unclipped ($2.75) and is bright, attractive, and whole with a 1" closed tear to the rear panel and light wear to the edges. NOT ex-library. Over-all, a nice signed first edition in an attractive example of the rare jacket of one of Bromfield's most desirable novels. Basis for the 1939 20th-Century Fox film starring Myrna Loy and Tyrone Powers, which won the Academy Award for special effects, as well as a later film staring Lana Turner and Richard Burton.
