GROSSET & DUNLAP
Reprint of the 1908 Bobbs Merril Edition. 342 pages, plus ads.

THE VOLUME: The book is in VERY GOOD. condition. Predominantly very clean and bright boards with gilt accents, also very bright. A little soiling along the top and lower edge of the upper board and an unusual stain/flaw on lower spine, which has erased part of the publisher's name, but without seeming to weaken the fabric in any way (not vulnerable to fraying, not thinning, etc.) Please refer to photo.

Text pages are also predominantly very clean. No writing or inscriptions. Some light foxing on the inner boards and end papers, and on the outer endge of the textblock—but without extending onto text surfaces. The hinges are intact and firm. The binding is tight and nearly perfectly square. (The spine leans very, very slightly—almost imperceptibly.)

THE DUSTJACKET: A NEW FACSIMILE copy of the scarce Howard Chandler Christy jacket, which sold with this 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.

THE STORY: The flaps on this dust jacket are blank as issued, so I'm afraid I have no idea what the story is about. However, the vibrant color illustrations by Christy certainly suggest a very intriguing story.

Feel free to ask questions and to request more photos.
