H. De Vere Stacpoole
STACPOOLE H. De Vere = The Blue Lagoon 1908 1st edition.
The Blue Lagoon by H. De Vere Stacpoole. London. T. Fisher Unwin 1908 hardcover first edition, first impression. 334 printed pages with 9 printed pages publisher's advertisement for other titles to rear. Dark blue cloth boards with gilt titles to front panel and spine. Wear/rubbing to most edges and corners commensurate with a 112 year existence. The gilt on the page block top edge has dulled, other edges have toned. hinges are intact and binding is sound. The book is complete and original. The contents have occasional outbreaks of fox spotting. The preliminaries have some spotting and toning, mostly at the rear. Previous owner Mildred Canibet has applied her personal small rubber name stamp to the front paste-down - the only ink not applied by the printer. There are three other copies of this first edition currently on offer, two of them at well over £1,300 each, one having previously been in an author's library, the other even more expensive and described as 'acceptable' and having at least one replacement leaf. The third copy, from the pictures I have seen, appears to be in considerably worse condition than the item being offered here, and is priced at not far south of £700. [Attributes: First Edition]
