Item Description: GROSSET AND DUNLAP, 1932. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First photoplay edition of KING KONG, with its scarce near fine original dust jacket. Published by Grosset and Dunlap, 1932. Conceived by Edgar Wallace and Merian Cooper. This was the novelization of the screenplay and is considered to be the rarest of the photoplay editions. The book was published slightly before the film was released. The book without the original jacket can be found in prices ranging from $400 to $800 (depending on condition), yet examples of this book in a similar condition original dust jacket sells for $9000 and up. It is the rarity and collectibility of the jacket which distinguishes the pricing, with the jacket having 15x the value of the actual book. This is the result of the jacket being both fragile, in addition to that dust jackets at the time were intended to be discarded as they were considered as mere advertisements, so as a result relatively few are left available. The original lavishly painted King Kong jacket art is collectible in it¿s own right, with the background mixing the New York setting with the dinosaurs of Skull Island. This book comes with the scarce near fine original dust jacket. The book is in beautiful condition with crisp lime green cloth boards, with strong unfaded deep chocolate brown titles to front and spine. The boards have some very slight toning, with a minuscule red speak to the front. The book has sharp corners with no edgewear but for one tiny upper very tip of one corner. The end papers depict scenes from the photoplay and are clean with no bookplates, no tears, and no stains. The internal pages are clean, with two pages of faded handling marks, otherwise no marks, no stains, no foxing, and appears as unread. The boards have a touch of very slight rubbing to bottom corner tips. The deep chocolate top stain applied by the publisher to the top of the page block is strong and unfaded. A beautiful, clean book. The value of this book is in the near fine original dust jacket. The jacket has strong vibrant, vivid colors with but some typical fading to the spine only. This in itself is most unusual as this jacket was very prone to fading, and of the few remaining original jackets having survived, many are found with faded front and rear panels as well as faded spines. The dust jacket has benefited from some restoration to the spine ends, and an intact tear along the fold, by an expert paper conservator and presents as a near fine example. The jacket has no rips, no chips, no tears, no rubbing, no stains (even the flaps are clean and bright), and no foxing. The reverse side of the jacket has the requisite text ads listing the Grosset and Dunlap publications. Stunning, handsome jacket presenting the book beautifully on the shelf. The dust jacket is protected in a new clear removeable archival cover. Extremely Scarce title in collectible condition. Classic rare book. ADDITIONAL 15 IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please see our Abe store for other rare titles and original illustration art. Bookseller Inventory # 001135
