Wharton, EdithThe Children (First Print) New York D. Appleton & Co. 1928 First Cloth Very Fine First Edition/First Printing 1928. A stunning copy in fine condition without the rare and fragile dustjacket. This copy has a few shadow "flecks" to the back cover--and that is the only flaw. In remarkable almost new condition--an unread copy purchased recently from an estate auction at Bonham's and Butterfields. Tight square and clean throughout--no markings, no owner names, no faded pages. Black cloth with yellow-gold lettering and scroll decorations to front board and spine. Uncut page edges on two of three edges. 347 pp. with Roman numeral (1) at bottom of last page and without the mention of "First Printing" which are the first issue points--a very rare copy indeed and especially in this condition. Additional scans available upon request.
