The Face in the Abyss
New York: Horace Liveright, 1931. Very Good. Item #14469
New York: Horace Liveright, 1931. First Edition. Octavo; [ii], 343pp. Illustrated dust jacket with $2.00 price intact; bound in publisher's yellow cloth with black lettering and ornamentation. Red topstain.
Jacket restored by prior owner with complete backing in archival tissue and some color fills and touch-ups, with evidence of a few prior shallow tears and chips along edges -- one at top back corner just clipping a bit of hand-restored text -- and some current general smudges to surface and scuffing along folds. Boards are square with some smudging to cloth and darkening to spine, moderate nudging at head and tail, and some spotting to back. A couple waterspots to topstain, without significant bleed into pages. Opens easily between a few gatherings but binding is holding. Pages unmarked.
