KING COLE. Burnett, illiam, iley.


New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1936. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-2] 3-292, title page printed in orange and black, original green cloth, front and spine stamped in orange and black, fore and bottom edges rough cut. First edition. First leaf tipped in stating "This First Edition Presentation Copy is sent to you with the compliments of Red Book Magazine," in which the story first appeared. Political novel. "Somewhat timely in its subject matter -- the story of the period before an election, in which the Republican governor is up for reelection, and goes a bit Hitler in his endeavor to counterbalance his opponent's control of the farm vote. Political situation interspersed with counter plots -- his daughter is in and out of love, his son on the verge of expulsion, his own love life is in a precarious state, with scandal on the fringe. With his reelection, the personal problems fade away. Good fast business -- fairly vivid in the telling -- good entertainment for men especially. Burnett can tell a story well." - Kirkus review, 1 October, 1936. Hubin, pp. 119-120. A fine copy in a very good dust jacket with a 'v' chip to the upper right front corner, shallow loss to the head of the spine panel, mild shelf wear to the lower spine panel and corner tips, some color fade to the orange background of the spine panel. (22407). Item #22407
