Description

    "Here's my hope that we all find our Shangri-La."

    James Hilton. Lost Horizon. London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd., 1933.

    First edition. Octavo. 281 pages plus two-page publisher's advertisement.

    Publisher's green cloth with gilt spine titles. In original pictorial dust jacket. Housed in a custom quarter morocco clamshell box. Minor wear to the spine ends and corners. Small bump to the lower rear corner. Very faint smudging of boards. Light foxing of textblock edges. Minimal toning to the spine of the dust jacket. A beautiful copy in near fine condition, and surely one of the finest copies in the market.

    This hugely successful novel about the fictional utopian land of Shangri-La was made into an equally successful film by Frank Capra. The book's theme so captured the public's imagination that even Franklin Roosevelt was inspired enough to name the presidential retreat in Maryland "Shangri-La" (it is now called Camp David).

    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.
