Description:
London: William Heinemann. 1935. First edition, first printing. First edition, first printing. Publisher's original brown cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper.

Correctly priced 7/6 net to both the front and rear flaps. An attractive looking example of the author's scarcest and most desirable title to obtain in dustwrapper. The basis for the 1951 Academy Award winning John Huston directed film of the same name starring Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. The later American first printing was published without the last three chapters of the Heinemann edition. Further details and… Read more
