London: Jarrolds, Circa 1930s. First UK Edition, and first printing in English. 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.
