Roberts, Kenneth. Arundel (First Edition in facsimile dust jacket). (Garden City, NY, 1930.)
Roberts, Kenneth. Arundel (First Edition in facsimile dust jacket). Doubleday, Doran & Company, Garden City, NY, 1930.
Binding: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good- Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: Facsimile Dust Jacket. Size: 7.5"-8" - Small Octavo (Sm. 8vo). 618 pages.
First printing of Roberts' first novel with all of the matching points.
The front hinge is strong, which is good since the front hinge is often broken on the first printings of this book. However, the binding is a bit loose at pp. 30-31. As a result the free front end paper and half title do stick out a bit, resulting in wear along those page edges. The top page edge is dyed red.
Very Good-minus hardcover bound in dark navy blue cloth over boards with orange decoration and title on front cover and spine. The cloth is worn at the tips and head and foot of the spine. The front and back covers show some rubbing and a couple of small spots where something may have dripped on the cloth.
The rare first issue dust jacket is missing. In its place is a clearly labeled *facsimile* dust jacket in a clear protective sleeve.
Note: I have a large selection of Kenneth Roberts books and related materials. Contact me if you are looking for something in particular.
