1 Defoe, Daniel MOLL FLANDERS
New York Hogarth Press 1931 First US Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket; Some weakening to the front interior binding seam...no prior owner names, not a library book. Illustrated by Alexander King 
Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 301 pages; Orange cloth cover with gold lettering/decoration. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this edition is wondering what motivated Leonard and Virginia Woolf to publish this slightly erotically illustrated version of the Defoe classic.
