My Best Girl
London: The Readers Library Publishing Company Ltd, [1st UK edition, 1928]
The Readers Library published affordable editions of popular fiction in the period 1924-35, cheaply produced but very attractive with their wrap-round dustwrapper artwork.
A film tie-in of the Allied Artists’ 1927 silent movie, produced by and starring Mary Pickford.
Attractive dustwrapper artwork by A. S. Merritt.
Hardback in dustwrapper. 250pp. Size: 6.75 x 4.25 inches approx. (169mm x 105mm).
Light wear and rubbing to dustwrapper; a touch dusty and marked in places. Light wear to boards and spine, with some marking to rear board. Pages age-tone throughout but generally clean.
Overall, showing some light wear but otherwise a particularly nice, clean copy – quite lovely.
