First Printing First Issue before the Illustrated edition. From the recently auctioned collection of M. B. Goldstone--and with his custom gold bookplate attached with penciled signature to the front pastedown. Brown decorated cloth with gilt and black lettering to front board and spine. Goldstone had this copy enclosed in a custom green cloth dustjacket with a small leather title on spine and gilt lettering including the words "First Edition 1879" to bottom cloth spine DJ. Copy and DJ are enclosed in a custom made green morocco slipcase with green matching cloth of the DJ. First issue points include date on title page and first ad at rear covering Frances Hodgson Burnett. Book and dustjacket in near fine condition--only normal age toning. A tight copy--unmarked interior. The slipcase has some edgewear at the top and bottom of the opening--as normal--else would also be near fine. A great copy from one of the great collectors--along with his brother Adrian (Homer) who was Steinbeck's bibliographer--both Goldstone's had a tremendous collection--including the recent copy of Gatsby which went for $180,000 at auction. Rudder Grange was followed up from Stockton by "The Rudder Grangers Abroad" and "Pomona's Travels".
