Great Contemporaries

Thornton Butterworth, London, 1938, Revised edition adds four new essays (Parnell, Baden-Powell, Roosevelt, Fisher) making it bibliographically important. Bound in coarser darker navy cloth than firsts. 387 pages, photo plate of each of the 25 subjects. Here is a fresh crisp copy in the scarce dustwrapper. The book is tight and clean, 2 minor blemishes on front cover. Gilt on spine just a little dull but far better than usually seen on this edition. Page edges even and white, a few blurs that may eventually grow up to be spots. Contents fine. Dustwrapper is the correct dark blue with portrait style, unclipped, but well worn. A 2 x 3 inch piece gone from rear panel, and a one inch triangle at base of front cover has an old crude patch. (ICS A43b.1). Item #36553

Price: $400.00
