London: Jarrolds, circa 1930. First Edition. An edition of this title so rare that we had been heretofore unaware of its existence, issued under the publisher's "Jay Library" series, at a price of 7/6. Basis for the classic 1930 film by Josef von Sternberg, starring Emil Jannings and a very young Marlene Dietrich, filmed simultaneously in both German and English.
Very Good in a extremely bright and colorful, Very Good plus dust jacket. Boards slightly bowed, with evidence of exposure to moisture at the fore-edges. Jacket has no loss, only a bit of shallow creasing at the spine ends.
