Thunder on the Left
Doubleday, Page & Company, Garden City, NY 1925 - Scarce first edition/first printing copy SIGNED and INSCRIBED by the author on the flyleaf title page. Inscription sits beautifully above the title and reads, "Ex Libris [name] signed for her by Christopher Morley." The author's signature is exceptionally scarce, let alone in a first edition/first printing copy. Further, this appears to be a presentation copy from the author's personal library (see "ex libris" in the inscription). There is some minor water staining on the bottom edge. There is also some very minor water staining inside the book extending into the top of the last ten pages approximately 1/2" but does not present on the upper edge and does not affect the text in any way. The dust jacket could be described as "tattered" and fair at best, but it is original to the book and remains in one piece. There is one large chip (1-1/2") on the bottom along the spine and another large chip (1-1/2") on the inside bottom of the front jacket flap where some of the text is torn away. The book itself is tight and clean with no writing or other marks. The boards are flat and true, and the corners are square. The book is unrubbed and shows minimal shelf wear. An extremely scarce, highly collectible author's copy. Includes archival mylar cover to protect what is left of the dust jacket. Satisfaction guaranteed! [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
