About This Item

San Francisco: The Book Club of California, 1938. First Thus. Vellum-backed marbled boards. Near Fine. (xx), 1, 21, 1 pages. First Edition Thus. Introduction by Francis P. Farquhar. Vellum-backed marbled boards. Gilt spine-titling. 5 1/4" x 8". Slipcase. Limited to 350 copies printed by The University of California Press. Per the Introduction, "'The Helmet of Mambrino' well supports the claim of (Clarence) King's friends that his casual conversation often equalled the best literature of his day, for this letter to a friend was undoubtedly produced spontaneously without thought of publication." A beautifully produced small book. Neat pictorial bookplate at front pastedown; small bookseller's stamp removal scar to rear pastedown, but a Near Fine copy in a Very Good Plus (slight abrasions at opening ends) slipcase. ALWAYS FREE SHIPPING via media mail to any United States address.
