Publisher: New York, Harper & Brothers: 1932

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 17678

Condition: Fair in Fair dj


[a pretty beat-up copy, probably an ex-rental library book although NOT stamped or marked as such in any way; the dust jacket, however, is backed with brown paper and thoroughly glued down at the flaps, which was pretty standard practice for such libraries; in any case, the book is heavily worn (but internally clean and with its binding intact), and the jacket is, well, a mess]. The author of this "distinguished and thoughtful novel about present-day New York" thought it best to cloak himself in anonymity, so "that the personages with whom he is acquainted will not be embarrassed by his prese...

[nice tight clean copy, minor shelfwear only; jacket very attractive, with just a touch of soiling and a couple of tiny edge-nicks]. The trials and tribulations of an unwed mother -- or, more precisely, a divorcee who gets knocked up by her lover, then refuses his half-hearted marriage proposal, and subsequently suffers "pain, hunger, want." The jacket copy really goes to town, in the best Macaulay house style: "No human experience is so profound and rich in emotion as the long crisis of pregnancy . . . and when the expected child must legally be fatherless then crisis is added up...

[ex-rental library book (Vierstahler Bros., on Walnut St., city unknown), marked by only a single stamp on the ffep, some soiling to fore-edge and bottom page edges, binding a little weak (but no cracks or splits), light shelfwear; jacket is edgeworn, with small tears and a teensy bit of paper loss at several corners, a bit of smudging/creasing in front panel, moderate soiling to rear panel].
