New York: William Godwin, Inc., 1940. First Thus. Hardcover. 6 1/4 X 9 1/2 Inches. 290 PP. Very Good / Good. Item #4987
Original scarce 1940 edition with illustrations by film director Vincente Minnelli. Edited by Joseph Monet. While the book was printed and bound by William Godwin, the jacket appears to be from the 1946 edition by Willey Book Company. The book was originally published by Godwin under the Exotica Club imprint in 1930. A mixed bag as far as collecting goes, but a nice copy and the book is the first under the William Godwin imprint. Foxing and toning throughout. Some rubbing to spine. DJ worn and chipped at edges and folds a bit.
