Garden City NY: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc.. Near Fine in Very Good dj. 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . [book itself is very nice, virtually as new except for some minor soiling at the top edge of the rear cover and a tiny stain on the half-title page, with a vintage price-sticker (from the famous San Francisco department store The White House) on the rear pastedown; the jacket has a few small edge-tears, soiling to rear panel, minor crinkling/creasing at base of spine]. Continuation of the saga of the Sanger family, introduced in the author's best-selling and somewhat controversial 1924 novel "The Constant Nymph," which inspired two different stage versions, an early television drama (on the BBC in 1938), and no fewer than three film adaptations, most notably by MGM in 1943, with Charles Boyer and Joan Fontaine. "Fool" went the multi-media route, too, serving as the basis for the 1934 play "Escape Me Never," which in turn was filmed twice: in England in 1935 and in America in 1947, the latter version starring Errol Flynn and Ida Lupino. Beautiful dust jacket design and illustration by the great Rockwell Kent, depicting a very doleful fellow in the Dolomites. . (Inventory #: 19283)
