Description

    Novelization of King Kong by Delos W. Lovelace. Conceived by Edgar Wallace and Merian C. Cooper. (New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1932), first edition, 249 pages, green cloth with dark brown lettering on spine and front board, 8vo (5.5" x 8.25"), no dust jacket. This novelization, based on the screenplay by James Creelman and Ruth Rose, actually appeared before the movie was released in 1933, and is a much sought-after book for collectors. The endpapers are illustrated by stills from the original film. This copy is in good condition, with some soiling to the boards and textblock edges, bumped corners, a sunned spine, and edge and spine wear present. One bump visible to the top edge of the front board. Previous owner's stamp on front pastedown. Hinges shaken, but not loose. Still, the text pages are very clean in this first novelization of the groundbreaking 1933 King Kong, a book that is scarce in any condition.
