First American Edition Set
Dodd Mead Co. [New York]
Biblio: (Cohen A267.3[I-IV].a) (Woods A138ab)
8vo (521, 433, 402 and 403 pages, illustrated with maps)
Hardcover (with Dust Jackets) [Blue-Grey cloth]
Item Number: 206969
This is a very good First American edition set in unclipped dust jackets that are virtually mint. The cloth is similarly mint; crisp and bright. The contents are fine and unfoxed, with rich red topstains. The hinges on Volume IV are beginning to give but the binding remains tight.
Laid-into Volume I is a small white card that reads: “With Compliments of Dodd, Mead & Company, Inc.”
A lovely publisher’s presentation set.
