New York: Grosset & Dunlap. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. [1935] (c.1921). First Edition Thus. Hardcover. [light wear to cloth at extremities, very minor bumping to bottom corners, slight dust-soiling to top edge; jacket shows some wear (including a few tiny tears) along top and bottom edges, minimal paper loss at spine ends and a couple of corners, light soiling to spine]. Tarkington's classic novel of small-town American social anxiety and romantic awkwardness, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1922, and wonderfully filmed by George Stevens (with Katharine Hepburn) in 1935. This reprint, issued to coincide with the release of the film, has beautiful (uncredited) jacket art depicting Hepburn in a front porch swing, although the book itself, alas, contains no illustrations from the movie. (The heyday of the original "Photoplay Editions," most of which contained either four or eight stills, was over by the mid-1930s.) .
