New York: Ives Washburn. Near Fine in Very Good dj. 1928. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . [nice clean tight copy, minor bumping at spine ends, no other significant wear; jacket has short tears at several corners, a few nicks and tiny tears at spine ends, small chip at bottom of rear panel, diagonal crease in rear flap]. Historical romance about Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc). "Saint, or Witch -- or a girl like other girls? Here is her love-story, founded on history; she moves among great people and great events, unconscious of them except as a background for her romance. Many sidelights are given on the character of the Maid: her home-life, the breach of promise suit, her part in the Witch-Revels of Domrémy." (Because Joan was apparently much more of a fun chick than the broad outlines of her standard bio would suggest.) And yet, "finally, what changed the inspired Maid of Orleans into the broken girl in a ragged red witch-dress who went to the stake?" I sure don't have a clue, but would it be tasteless of me to observe that that red dress is HOT!? [This item is featured in ReadInk's E-Catalog 3.1, which can be perused in full at our website.
