Paths of Glory. Humphrey Cobb.

Paths of Glory

New York: The Viking Press, 1935.

Advance uncorrected proof, untitled. Very Good condition. Originally issued in wraps, later rebound (apparently by former owner) in green cloth with gilt lettering at an unknown date. 265 p. First page (the original cover) age-toned, foxed, and a bit soiled. Former owner's name on front paste down. A bit of light foxing to edges. At this novel's completion, the author still didn't have a suitable title, so the publisher made the title selection a contest with a $50 reward for the winner. Paths of Glory would be the author's only book, later finding fame with Stanley Kubrick's film adaption. An unusual proof. Item #140907102

Price: $700.00
