About this Item

Modern Library #61. This is an early printing (1930s) of the first Modern Library edition, in flexible binding (type 7, used from 1931-9) and with the earliest ML dustjacket used for this title - the one in lilac, beige and black with the man in suspenders on all fours, drinking from a stream. The jacket lists "246 Outstanding Books." on the verso, and has the rear panel in (Toledano) style "g", used by the ML from 1936-1944. The jacket specifically dates from Spring, 1937 with Graves, I Claudius listed, but without Woolf, To the Lighthouse (per Gordon B. Neavill's Modern Library Dating Key, 1925-1970). (The "First Modern Library Edition" dates from 1932, and the correct jacket lists "200 . Books"). The book is in near fine condition, with a thin strip of fading to each spine tip, else fine. The dustjacket is very good, with light edge wear (small chips, short closed tears) with a small shallow chip at the upper spine tip. The most serious jacket flaw is some separation of the paper at the front flap ( a little more than half the length). This could be repaired, but in the meantime is held together nicely by the mylar jacket cover. Otherwise, the jacket has very little wear and very little missing paper. It is slightly tanned at the spine, but is not creased, and retains the original "95 cents a copy" price on the front flap. Bookseller Inventory # 1863
