New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1934. First Edition, in the green jacket with the “Book of the Month” blurb on the front panel. One of four jacket variants issued, with no established priority.
Basis for the 1934 film, and the characters that would populate five delightful sequels between 1939-1947.
Near Fine in a brilliant, Near Fine dust jacket. Apart from a touch of fading at the board edges, absolutely none of the usual mottling to the cloth on the front or rear boards. Topstain is a deep purple-brown, unfaded and clean. Jacket is Fine but for a hint of rubbing at the spine ends and moderate fading to the spine panel. A spectacular copy.
