Condición de la sobrecubierta: No Jacket as issued
5 leatherette hardbacks, issued without dust jackets, from the very first Modern Library collection by Boni and Liveright. Published 1918-1921. called hard covers, they have, actually, pliable faux leather boards, dubbed "leatherette". The word was coined in description of this particular series. All five are in very good or better condition, all bindings are tight and secure, no loose pages or broken hinges. Text pages are clean and unmarked, few have previous owner's names written on feps. Covers show little wear from age and use, one top of the spine is lightly frayed, but stiil - very attractive little set. CANDIDE & RED LILLY have green covers, ERIC DORN & MARIUS THE EPICUREAN are brown, and BAUDELAIRE - red. BAUDLAIRE also has decorative, pictorial end papers by Horace Brodzky. This is very attractive example of the first edition of Modern Library - the turn of last century version of the paperback, the attempt to bring great literature to the masses by providing inexpensive copies of great books.
