New in New jacket. Lang: -eng, Pages 408. It is the reprint edition of the original edition which was published long back (1922).

We found this book important for the readers who want to know more about our old treasure so we brought it back to the shelves. We tried to manage the best possible copy but in some cases, there may be some pages which are blur or missing or with black spots. We expect that you will understand our compulsion in these books. Print on Demand.

Roberts' second book, drawn from articles he wrote on immigration and events in Europe for "The Saturday Evening Post." The standard Roberts bibliographies report there were only 2, 011 copies of the first edition printed. 356 pages. Text block is unmarked, with the exception of a note in the gutter on p. 3 ("16718-Jan. 1923"); the pages are slightly tanned from age. The binding is tight overall, but the bottom of the front hinge is a bit loose. Red textured cloth over boards with faded gilt title on spine. Front panel has embossed single-line border around the edges; corners are sharp, though showing some wear at the tips. There is some dullness to the bottom 1" of the front cover and 1/2" at the bottom of the back cover from exposure to moisture. There is also a spot about the size of a dime in the middle of the front cover. Signed "With all the good wishes of | Kenneth Roberts" on his bookplate, which is pasted to the inside front cover. Roberts-signed copies are scare, although this is a later signature, since Roberts didn't use this book plate until after he started writing his novels and didn't make a practice of providing signed book plates until later, when the demand caused him to stop flat-signing books that were sent to him.
