About this Item

Inscribed By Author. Author's first book. Inscribed in the year of publication on flyleaf in black ink: "To / Stanton Christensen / With kind regard-- / George Martin / Sept. 20, 1940" A fine copy in a good dj which has a 1" closed tear, and some mild wear/tiny shallow chipping along edges. No major chips, and NOT price-clipped. Later made into a feature film by MGM, starring Edward G. Robinson and Margaret O'Brien. We are also including a copy of the photoplay edition, as a companion to the first edition. Unlike many photoplays of the period, this one is printed on good paper, with a substantial number of b/w still photographs from the movie. Published in 1945 by Grosset and Dunlap. There is some water damage to the front and rear edges of the book, and cooresponding staining to the jacket edges. Internally, the book is fine, and the jacket, other than the staining, is vg+ with just a few spots of abrasion along spine and some mild edgewear and tiny chips. "This novel was first published in 1940--and people stayed away from it in droves. Critics called it "a minor classic" and "a fresh voice in American literature." (From the photoplay flap copy.).

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
