Hutchinson, Arthur Stuart-Menteth.  The happy warrior. Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1913. 8vo (19.3 cm, 7.59"). Frontis., ix, [1], 448, [4 (adv.)] pp.
$35.00

Surprisingly dark example of the "wrongfully dispossessed heir" novel genre, with the added excitement of an interlude in which the rightful Lord Burdon, having been adopted and raised by his postmistress aunt, becomes a boxer and hits the road with the circus. The dramatic ending was altered for both the 1917 and 1925 Hollywood versions. This is the second American edition, in a => binding signed "DD" for Decorative Designers, and with a frontispiece by Paul Julien Meylan.
        Binding: Publisher's tan cloth, front cover and spine stamped in gilt and dark brown foliate motifs incorporating the motto, "I hold"; signed as above.

Bound as above, lacking the seldom-seen dust jacket; spine with gilt very slightly dimmed and minimal wear to extremities, otherwise clean and bright. Front free endpaper with early inked ownership inscription and "Xmas 1913." Pages slightly and evenly age-toned. => Very good.  (41339)   Please RESHELVE This.
