Near Fine to Fine in Very Good+ to Near Fine jacket. Signed by Author(s) SIGNED and dated ("Nov 1975" so this, though not a first, is probably an early printing) by Mr. Stone on a large label affixed to the half-title page. Above the label (on the page) he inscribed the book. 479 page hardcover, includes illustrated endpapers and a map frontispiece (Aegean Sea and surrounds). "Rarely does a reader find in a novel that delightful joining of a love story, an adventure story, and the beginnings of a new and fascinating science: archaeology, all combined in a wide panorama, a monumental tale. THE GREEK TREASURE is an unforgettable human story. The reader will relate to Sophia and Henry, will care about them, finishing the last page of the novel reluctantly, yet fulfilled." Excellent copy: spine square/some wear at front corner of heel else the book is as new with NO markings throughout. The dj's spine has one minor vertical crease/head and heel are slightly bumped with one short and one tiny tear at head and two very small chips at heel, minor wear at corners/couple tiny edgetears else it's in excellent condition, also, and attractive. NOT an ex-library, NOT a book club, NOT a remainder, dj NOT price-clipped (well, it IS clipped; but there's a Doubleday price sticker next to the clip ["$14.95"] so that's sort of like it's not clipped! ).
