Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1943.


Hardcover. First edition. Faint evidence of a bookplate removal on the front pastedown else fine in a near fine dustwrapper with a bit of minute rubbing at the bottom of the spine and front panel, but with none of the spine fading or restoration that typically plagues this title. One of the scarcest film source books. Basis for the classic 1944 film directed by Otto Preminger (and Rouben Mamoulian) and starring Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Vincent Price, and Clifton Webb. An exceptional copy of this title, the nicest unrestored condition copy that we've seen (as it was when we handled this same copy in 2004).
