About This Item

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1951. This is the 2nd edition published 3 years after the original first edition. This copy signed and inscribed by Laughlin. Unpaginated, but 100 beautiful full-page black and white plates. This copy is signed by Laughlin and a friend. This is a very good cloth copy, with some foxing mainly to the page-edges (visible when book is closed), and also to endpapers. Plates clean. Slight wrinkling to the bottom portion of the pages. The dust jacket is 95% there, missing a small fragment from the top of the spine, and a smaller chip out of the top right corner of the front panel (it just cuts off the corner of the "M" in Mississippi), also a few folds and creases on the edges. Still, a beautiful book, in pretty good shape, and quite rare signed. 13" high X 10" wide. This book will be securely wrapped and packed in a sturdy box and shipped with tracking.. Signed by Author. 2nd Edition. Cloth. Very Good/Very Good.
