Book Description Stokes, New York, 1930. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Hardcover, lacking the dust jacket, probably as issued. Tipped onto the front free end-paper is an "Advance Copy" slip, noting "This book is sent you for review purposes with the compliments of Frederick A Stokes Company" giving the publication date (Sept 15, 1930) and retail price ($2.50). Presumably, the price needed to be included as no jacket was sent out with review copies? This copy also signed and inscribed on the half-title page "New York, 1930/ For/ Frieda and Ben Bay/ Wherever they are/ With the best wishes and/ Affection of/ Louis and mary Bromfield." Overall condition is VG or VG+, with mild toning to the color of the spine; else quite nice. Super inscribed copy, very possibly a review copy sent to the author for the sort of gift-giving implied by the inscription. Inscribed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # 000606

Book Description Fredrick A. Stokes, New York, 1930. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing of Bromfield's eighth novel (Bromfield won the 1927 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, for "Early Autumn"). Thick 8vo: [8],463,[1]pp. Publisher's textured vivid orange cloth, spine and upper cover lettered in blue, top edge stained orange, fore-edge untrimmed, yellow patterned end papers; illustrated dust jacket priced $2.50. About Fine (spine ends bumped, slight shelf wear, top stain faded); Near Fine or better jacket (spine panel lightly toned with ends rubbed, almost unnoticeable closed tear to front panel's lower right edge). Withal, an excellent copy, hardly ever encountered in such condition. First published serially under the title Shattered Glass. Basis for the 1931 film titled "24 Hours" and starring Clive Brook, Kay Francis, and Miriam Hopkins. "Louis Bromfield was a Midwestern-American writer and farmer whose wide-ranging career, straddling the literary, the commercial, and the agricultural, spanned over four decades from 1920-1956. . . . Twenty-Four Hours shifted from his earlier style [influenced by such epic, Victorian authors as Dickens, Thackeray, and Galsworthy] by fusing Victorian, middlebrow, and modernist themes and techniques. . . . Bromfield's reputation as a literary author was largely overlooked. He was remembered, instead, for his nature/agricultural writing and experimental farming at Malabar. . . . In recent years, however, critical interest has started to address this imbalance . . . Perhaps, in light of this new interest, Bromfield's literary and cultural significance in twentieth century American literary history will begin to emerge." (Literary Encyclopedia) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Bookseller Inventory # BB1527
