AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY. Theodore Dreiser.


New York: Boni & Liveright, 1925. First edition. Volume one only of the two-volume trade edition, which preceded the limited edition by a year. One of Dreiser's most acclaimed books, made into a film in 1931 under this title and in 1951 as "A Place in the Sun" with Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor and Shelley Winters. A Haycraft-Queen title and on the Time 100 list. Gold stamped spine lettering a little dull, corners a bit rubbed and front hinge starting, otherwise very good condition. In a dust jacket with an obvious repair at top of spine where it appears lettering has been drawn in (nice job), otherwise near fine. VOLUME ONE ONLY.
