About This Item

New York: Charles Scribner & Sons, 1946 This Is Ascribner's Edition With 1946 On The Title Page,But No First Edition 'A' On The Copyright Page. It Is In A Fair Dustjacket With Much Loss In New Mylar. The Dustjacket Does Show The Original Price Of $3.00 And There Is A Gift Inscription From Christmas 1946 On The Inside Cover. This Was The First Edition Price, So Presume This Was An Early Reprint In The Same Year (This Was A Very Successful New York Times Bestseller, Extra Printings For The Christmas Market Are Not Surprising). There Is Foxing And Yellowing Of The Pages And The Gilt Is Fading From The Titles On The Red Boards, But Wear Is Very Light And Corners Are Very Good. Historical Story Of Amalie Maxwell, Schoolteacher, Daughter Of A Drunken Tenant Farmer And An Admitted Gold Digger, 'As Clever As She Was Beautiful.' There Is A 'Strange And Ungovernable Attraction' Between Her And Her Brother-In-Law And Competing Heir . . One Can Imagine The Sexual Tension. I Can Imagine Harlequin Would Still Be Given A Run For Its Money With This One!
