About This Item

New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1951. Later printing. Boards. Near Fine/Very Good. Later printing. [8], 422 pages. 8vo. Paper boards. Illustrated dj. This copy has two dust jackets, and more importantly two "belly bands" which are advertisements for the MGM film production, starting Robert Taylor and Deborah Kerr. There is minor wear to the extremities of the dust jackets, and a small chip to the outer belly band lower edge. We love production extras, when they put two dust jackets and two belly bands on the same book! Minor rubbing to the band, mostly to the rear panel. The band has three scenes from the movie on it (one front, one rear, one small it on the spine portion). Boards. On the belly band, it notes that Quo Vadis has already sold 1,500,000 copies, and is now a Six and a half million dollar MGM Motion picture. Originally printed by Little, Brown and Co.
