Captain Blood. His Odyssey
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1922. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine / Near Fine. Original black cloth, lettered in red to the front panel and spine. 8vo - 356pp. A genuinely excellent copy. One would be hard-pressed to find a nicer example. The book is solid, the corners true and has been cared for over the many years. The bright dust jacket has a few very shallow closed tears. The original $2.00 price is present on the flap. Original dust jacket art work by N. C. Wyeth, which is repeated on the frontispiece. "Captain Blood" is the first title listed on the rear panel of the jacket and "The Snare" is the last, making it the true first issue jacket. Previous owner dated gift inscription (1923) to the front free endpaper. The publication date for this book is listed as August, 1922 but it was actually printed in May of 1922.
