Show Boat

Ferber, Edna

Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Co.. Very Good in Good+ dj. (c.1926). First Trade Edition. Hardcover. [slight bump to top right corner of front cover, light foxing to bottom edge of text block, spine very slightly turned; unclipped jacket ($2.00 printed price) is lightly soiled, sun-browning to spine and along edge of rear flap, a bit of chipping at top of spine (slightly affecting the printed title thereon)]. An American classic. The novel was a best-seller, and the subject matter made its adaptation into a stage musical a natural; the Kern-Hammerstein musical opened on Broadway in December 1927 and ran for a year and a half; the first, mostly-silent version went into release in 1929, followed by full musical (talkie) adaptations in 1936 and 1951. .

SHOW BOAT

FERBER, Edna

1926. Hardcover. pp. 398.,Small 8vo,,,Two copies of this book are for sale, as one lot: the first is a first British edition, published in 1926 by William Heinemann, London. It is printed from the same sheets as the American edition, although the preliminary pages are different, as is the binding and dust jacket. The British edition is bound in blue cloth with silver lettering to the front board and spine. The jacket is essentially the same as the American jacket, except the background is yellow - not green - and, of course, it shows a price in shillings and pence. The second copy we have for sale is an early printing (dated 1926 on the title page) of the first American edition published in 1926 by Doubleday, Page & Co., Garden City, NY. The title page spreads over two pages and is printed in orange and black ink, versus the more modest one page, black ink, of the British edition. The size and pagination of both editions are the same. There is no dust jacket with our copy of the American edition. The British edition is sl. rubbed & bumped at the corners, and shows sl. soiling. The binding is stressed, and a trifle separated between the first and second signatures; else in good plus condition. The jacket is missing a large piece from the top of the spine, and a smaller piece from the base of the spine. It is generally chipped at edges, with some small closed tears. In about fair condition. The boards of the American edition are soiled, bumped, and a bit edge-worn. The binding is a bit stressed. The book is now more of a good reading copy.
