Condition Condition Condition!!!
The first edition first printing’s with original dust jackets are rarely ever found. This one is in excellent condition considering there are probably less than 100 that have survived over the years. Other similar copies have sold for 50,000 and more. This book is in excellent condition. The red cloth cover and gilt are bright and looks great with almost no wear. The book is fully intact with no torn or missing pages. There are some pen markings on pages toward the beginning of the book. No markings have been noticed after page 31. There is slight dust buildup on the top edge of the book. The boards are slightly curved but still firm!
The dust jacket is in excellent condition with some fading and minimal edge wear.
This is a very rare book as there were only about 4,600 printed in 1939. This one is in great condition for being 80 years old!
