New York: Macmillan, 1933. Decorated cloth. Pastedowns tanned, as often, but a very good or better copy in price- clipped pictorial dust jacket (by Vera Block) with three minute chips at tips. Item #WRCLIT76725
First edition. A fictional depiction of the tension between farm life and the attraction of city life in Depression-era Maine. This copy is denoted 'Published March, 1933' on the verso of the title. The bibliographic citation accompanying the entry for the first edition of this title in THE MIRROR OF MAINE specifies 'Published May, 1933' and puts it in a different binding. As the title was adopted by the BOMC, one must wonder which corresponds to the first printing, although all of the signed copies or presentation copies of this title we've handled over 40 years were in this binding. Adapted by Warner Bros for the screen in 1934. HANNA 613. MIRROR OF MAINE 50. COAN & LILLARD, p.30 INGLEHART 288.
