    A. Merritt and Hannes Bok. The Fox Woman and the Blue Pagoda. New York: New Collectors Group, 1946.

    First edition, first issue. Number 410 of 1,000 copies. 109 pages. Six full page illustrations, including the title page.

    Publisher's black cloth covers with the front cover lettered in gilt. Brown paper dust jacket, as issued. Some rubbing to he covers, minor closed tears and toning to the jacket. Altogether a tight and very good copy.

    Hannes Bok (July 2, 1914 - April 11, 1964) completed, illustrated, and published this work after Abraham Merritt's (January 20, 1884 - August 21, 1943) passing. This work is a first binding due to the tight weave mesh black cloth and the plain paper dust jacket. The illustration on page [19] is of a nude man rather than a nude woman. There is generally no priority to the man or the woman, but this is due to Bok changing his mind half-way through publication to have a nude woman rather than nude man for this illustration.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
