A Man Marries
Fisher Dust Jacket
with Complimentary Matching Bookmark
Frontispiece by Harrison Fisher
pen and ink drawings by Mayo Bunker
& DUNLAP Early Reprint, 1909
VOLUME: The Reprint's
beautiful cover illustration is the illustration used in the
First Edition for both the frontispiece and its dust jacket.
reprint had one additional color illustration by Fisher, shown
here as the frontispiece, but I have seen some copies of the
reprint which did not have any interior color illustrations at
all. (The first edition had five.) So, when considering buying
a copy of the reprint, it would always be a good thing to check
on. There are pen and ink drawings by Mayo Bunker all
throughout the book. They show up about every third page and
greatly add to the story.
NEW FACSIMILE copy
of the very scarce jacket with Harrison Fisher artwork, which
sold with the reprint edition, made from a scan of an original
in very good condition, printed on one sheet of acid-free paper
by an archival inkjet printer (80 yr. inks), and preserved in
archival plastic. This dust jacket uses another of the color
illustrations which appeared in the first edition.
STORY: This is a VERY FUN read. My
husband and I read it aloud and did a lot of laughing. There is
a mystery in the story. A group of friends are quarantined
together for seven days, during which the main character is
pretending to be the wife of one man, while falling in love
with another. It began as a very successful play originally
called “Seven Days,” which the dust jacket makes reference
to. A must for every Rinehart fan, I'd say.
Jacket costs $12.00 and comes with a complimentary matching
bookmark and protective cover. (Price is reduced to $10.00 when
three or more djs are ordered.)
