The Tiger in the House

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1924. Second Printing. Cloth Hardcover. Good / No Dustjacket. Item #071788

Signed, dated "Christmas 1931", and inscribed mysteriously "To Madame X" from "Mr. X" with inscription (is this George Brent and Ruth Chatterton?! but it looks like the author's handwriting). Crisp, clean pages except for gentle age-toning throughout; modestly shaken hinges with a split starting at the rear hinge, full blue cloth cover moderately faded at the spine with gilt titles almost fully dimmed, spine ends softened, and spine ends and corners rubbed, with the bottom free corners showing briefly frayed threads, otherwise sound and attractive. 367pp. + advertisements at rear.

Price: $100.00
