Trending into Maine

Boston: Little, Brown, 1938. First Edition (Arundel Edition), one of 1075 copies (this being No. 618) SIGNED and numbered by both Kenneth Roberts and illustrator N.C. Wyeth. This copy is additionally inscribed by Kenneth Roberts to legendary director John Ford: "Doubly inscribed for John Ford / with the admiration of his fellow doctor / Kenneth Roberts / Doctorhurst, Maine / June 15th, 1938." Lacking the envelope with additional plates and the slipcase (likely tossed by Ford promptly upon receipt of the book).

A tremendous association between two artists who shared a fascination for the colonization of the United States, and who each in their own way molded that fascination into stories that are now timeless.

Very Good plus, some fading to board edges and light toning to the spine panel, else a tight, clean copy.
