New York: The Literary Guild, 1930. Lynd Ward. Literary Guild edition. Hardcover. 304pp. Octavo [22 cm] Pale green cloth over boards with the title stamped in brown ink on the spine, and an illustrated paper label mounted to the front cover only. Dark yellow endpapers. Top edge trimmed. Good. The spine is faded (title still legible) and rolled, and the covers are a bit cocked. The cloth is frayed at the spine ends and corners of the covers, and there is a small open tear in the cloth at the foot of the spine. The bottom edge of the text block has a handful of moisture stains. There is a previous owner's name on the front free endpaper, else the pages are age-toned, but very clean. Item #46550
With woodcuts by Lynd Ward, seven full-page, and eleven chapter headings. A book relating a string of journeys in the Far East, including Tahiti, Ceylon, and the New Hebrides.
