New York: The John Day Publishing Company, 1931.
First edition, first printing, first issue with "The John Day Publishing Company, Inc." on copyright page. Error "flees" that was present in the first three printings on p. 100, line 17. [vi], 375,  pp. Bound in publisher's brown cloth with gilt lettering, green topstain and green illustrated endpapers.

Jacket lightly worn along extremities with slight toning to spine panel, small black stain to rear panel, two tape ghosts to verso of flaps, small tape mend to verso of head. The jacket is scarce in such lovely condition with no work done to it. Housed in a custom crimson cloth slipcase. The first appearance of the bestselling historical novel.
