The African Queen [c.1960] Modern Library C.S. Forester Rockwell Kent endpapers Cloth wrapped hardcover
Published c. 1960 by Random House's Modern Library.
8vo, maroon cloth wrapped boards, Rockwell Kent designed end papers, 308 pages.
This is a "very good" vintage hard cover with a tight binding and hinges. No loose, torn or folded pages, the text block is square and closes tightly. Board corners are not bumped and moderately worn at tips. No names, plates or writing. Some sunning to spine and small puncture in cloth underneath "Modern" (see accompanying images). Foiled ML logo on the front board is mostly rubbed.
A fun and charming vintage copy of a much loved classic - basis for Hepburn and Bogie film!
Will ship promptly, carefully packaged.
