The White Company.
NY. Cosmopolitan Book Company. 1922. - First Edition, thus. With 13 splendid full-page color plates by N.C. Wyeth illustrating the text. Also, there is the paste-down illustration of archers in battle on the front boards which is repeated on the dustjacket's front panel. With wonderful endpapers with drawings of the King's Archers and valiant soldiers. Presentation inscription in ink by N.C. Wyeth on the half-title page: "To William B. Kriedal / Second Award of Merit in Art / Westham School 1933/ Presented by N.C. Wyeth." (Weyth's signature is underscored with a ditto mark below it.) VG/G+ in crisp clean wine-red woven cloth which has been protected by a dustjacket. The front paste-down and the rear panel are near fine, but the spine has a 1/4" tear at the top and scattered speckling or flecking. The gilt is lightly faded. The dustjacket is quite torn, heavily edge-rubbed, separated along folds and just barely good with its original: "Price $2.50" at the bottom of the inside front flap. On the rear panel which is torn and missing large pieces is the list of Cosmopolitan Color Books for Young People beginning with A Tale of Two Cities and ending with Boys and Girls of Bookland. All priced "Each $2.50". Internally the book is very clean and tight, and the plates are resplendent with the Wyeth magic. First Edition, thus. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
