AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY. Theodore Dreiser. AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY.
New York: Boni & Liveright, 1925. First edition. The trade edition in two volumes, as issued. Precedes the limited edition by a year. Much scarcer in nice condition, in our experience, than the limited. One of Dreiser's most acclaimed books. Made into the 1931 film of the same name and 1951's, "A Place in the Sun," starring Montgomery Clift, Elizabeth Taylor and Shelley Winters. This enduring classic is a Haycraft-Queen title and on Time Magazine's 100 Best Novels list. Based on the notorious 1906 murder of 20-year-old Grace Brown. Chester Gillette, who claimed Brown's death was accidental, was convicted of her killing in a trial that drew international attention. (Wikipedia) Bright and fine in bright dust jackets much nicer than usually seen. The jacket on volume one with chip at base of spine filled in but otherwise both jackets are very nearly fine. In the original gray paper-board slipcase with printed paper label pasted to one side. Slipcase shows general wear and minor repair to hinges but is still quite good. Scarce in original slipcase and this nice condition. MUCH SCARCER IN THIS NICE CONDITION THAN THE LIMITED.

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.
