Wanderer of the Wasteland
This is the rare first edition of Zane Grey's great western, WANDERER OF THE WASTELAND, published by Harper's in New York in 1923. Usually one finds the Grosset & Dunlop reprints of Zane Grey's books. This is the original first edition published by Harpers, and it has its original Harper's dust jacket. "First Edition" with "L-W" is stated on the copyright page. The book itself has no writing within and the binding is tight. The cover still has its bright red and black design, and the lettering on the spine is similarly bright. There is some rubbing of the lower spine end but the upper spine end has only some creasing. The dust jacket retains its original price ($2.00) and the front panel is sharp and bright. The spine ends have some chipping, however, the most significant being the upper spine end where the "WAN" of "wanderer" is effected. "Harper Brothers, established 1817" is intact and visible across the bottom of the front panel. There is also some hipping and rubbing on the folds between the covers and the flaps. Overall, though, this book is in very good condition and given the rarity of the original Harper's printing with its dust jacket, this book is highly collectable. Bookseller Inventory # 150B
