Bookplate on the front pastedown else fine in near fine, first issue dustwrapper that is nominally faded and with a small nick at one corner of the crown. A classic of American historical fiction. The first issue jacket, designed by Stafford Good, is rare. Apparently Roberts complained so bitterly to his publisher about this art that Doubleday had to commission a new jacket, illustrated by N.C. Wyeth. Copies with the first issue jacket are rarely seen--the Kenneth Roberts Centennial Commission, in 1985, located only two surviving examples of the jacket. See this book in 3D on our site.
