New York: Rinehart & Company, (1954). First Edition. Both volumes of this two volume set are in near fine condition in black cloth covered boards with the gilt stamping on the spine just beginning to fade. Without dust jackets as issued; however, the books are contained within a good paper covered slip case which has the top side detached and repaired with tape and wear the edges of the opening. Originally intended to be part of the Rivers of America series, but fell out at the last moment. The book club edition (which can be detected by a embossed dot on the lower right of the rear panel) is found everywhere. The true first edition with the stylized "R" (colophon) is rather uncommon. A clean and collectible set with no prior owner's names, dates or book plates. (Inventory #: TB28796)
