Tarkington, Booth

Doubleday Page

$1.40

Rust red boards stamped in black. Title page and copyright page should both say 1918 with no other statement of printings. Dust jacket is extremely rare and adds most of the value to the book. Price is stated on the spine. The price on the first issue jacket was $1.40. On later issue jackets, that price was blotted out by the publisher, and $1.50 was written below it.

The Magnificent Ambersons won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
