    Description

    John P. Marquand. The Late George Apley. A Novel in the Form of a Memoir. Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1937.

    First edition ("Lovely Pearl" at the top of page 19). Octavo. 354 pages.

    Publisher's blue cloth with gilt titles and rules. Original pictorial dust jacket. Top edge red. Several uncut leaves. Light bottom edge, corner, and spine wear to the boards. Previous bookshop sticker affixed to the rear endpaper. Textblock pages show faint vertical lines throughout caused by over-lubrication of the presses, a flaw that virtually all copies of the first edition share. Five tiny open tears and six closed tears to the dust jacket edges. Spine ends with minor chipping. Rear panel lightly rubbed and creased. Overall, a very good copy.
