CUP OF GOLD

By: Steinbeck, John

Price: $425.00

Publisher: New York, Covici Friede Inc.: 1936

Seller ID: 311

Binding: Hardcover

Condition: Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket; Overall- rarely seen in condition this good. Interior - All pages are intact and clean. They have slight age-toning so they are an off-white color. The paper remains thick and durable. There is faint browning to the edges of the pastedown endpapers. A previous owner's name is on the first free endpaper. There is no smell of smoke or anything else unpleasant. This book's interior is fresh and attractive, showing little sign of handling. Exterior - The book's boards lay flat and they are clean. They retain their original navy blue color, and the gilt stamping on the spine is fresh and bright. The corners are nice, as they are not turned. There is slight fraying to the cloth at the head and toe of the spine, otherwise the book looks untouched. The binding is perfectly tight and square, with the spine firmly attached to the textblock. Overall, the exterior of the book is worthy of such a rare collectible. Dust Jacket - The jacket is in very good shape and it is protected by a clear plastic cover. It retains its vivid, original colors. It folds correctly. There is a chip about 3/4" by 1/2" missing at the bottom of the spine, otherwise jacket is complete. The top of the spine has very small tears. The top and bottom of both the front panel and the back panel are solid. The jacket is clean. Overall, this is an attractive dust jacket that adds to the appeal of this book.
