About This Item

London: Chambers, 1935. First UK Edition, preceding all others.

A phenomenally popular novel in the UK and Ireland upon publication, and basis for the iconic 1952 John Ford film, "The Quiet Man," starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. The UK edition went well into multiple printings, the small first printing having always been extremely scarce, particularly in jacket.

Very Good plus in an about Very Good dust jacket. Neat contemporary owner name on the front endpaper. Slight lean, with a strip of fading along the bottom edge of the boards, light foxing to the page edges. Jacket has a few chips and short closed tears at the extremities, the largest being at the crown, affecting a portion of the title ("EEN" in "GREEN"). A very presentable copy overall.
