The Spell of the Pacific: An Anthology of Its Literature
NY, Macmillan, 1949. A massive anthology, introduced by James Michener, and featuring Herman Melville, Mark Twain, Henry Adams, Jack London, Robert Louis Stevenson, Katherine Mansfield, Joseph Conrad, Somerset Maugham, Rupert Brooke, etc. Edited by Stroven and Day. Owner name front flyleaf; small separation at lower front hinge; offsetting to endpages. Still about a near fine copy in a dust jacket that presents as very good, in part owing to having been internally, unprofessionally tape-strengthened along all edges and folds. Michener had won the Pulitzer Prize the year before this publication for his first book, Tales of the South Pacific. [#036211] $350

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
