The Voyage of the Chelyuskin by Members of the Expedition

Publisher: New York, Macmillan Co.: 1935

Seller ID: 023662

Condition: Very Good


Light blue buckram, lettered in white. Unclear edition with matching dates but no "Published in" and thus, we assume, not a first, though Macmillan's designation appears to be inconsistent in this era. Book shows darkening to cloth over most of both covers and spine, also partial darkening of front flyleaf and top margins of half-title and rear pastedown, all the result, we suspect, of smoke exposure from a fire, but the book is otherwise unharmed, with clean interior, firm binding, and only light shelf wear, all defects entirely cosmetic. Text block edges somewhat toned by age. xi... View more info
