[some wear to bottom edges of covers and spine ends, slight bumping to bottom corners, light soiling to edges of text block, 1934 gift inscription (non-authorial) on front pastedown; jacket heavily edgeworn, small ragged chip at top of front panel, a little paper loss at lower right corner of front panel and at spine extremities, various scuffs, creases, etc.]. Cheap-ass photoplay edition (with only a single still, the frontispiece, depicting stars Lew Ayres and Mae Clarke), no doubt reflecting necessary Depression-induced economies at the time the book (and movie) appeared in March 1932. The whole production (of the book) seems to be a bit of an anomaly, in fact: nowhere on the book itself is Grosset & Dunlap credited (only on the jacket), with the title-page statement reading simply "Published by arrangement with The Vanguard Press." (The movie version, by the way, was directed by James Whale.)
