The Spanish Earth (In the Publisher's Glassine Dustjacket)

Cleveland: The J.B. Savage Company, 1938. Frederick K. Russell. Cloth. A very impressive copy of the 1938 stated 1st edition. #353 of 1,000 numbered copies issued. Purportedly the 2nd issue, with the blank --rather than the pictorial-- endpapers. This copy though includes its fragile and uncommon original dustjacket. Tight and Near Fine to Fine in a crisp example of the unprinted glassine jacket, with a clean, thin tear running across the front panel and light chipping at the panel edges. The jacket is 95% complete and surely accounts for the superb condition of the book itself. 12mo, Introduction by Jasper Wood, the illustrations (woodblocks --or linocuts) by Frederick K. Russell. This deeply political work --set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War-- is essentially dedicated by Hemingway to John Dos Passos, Lillian Hellman and Archibald MacLeish. Fine / Very Good.
