    The Three Hostages

    , , ,
    The Three Hostages By John Buchan First edition, first impression of the American edition (Houghton Mifflin Company, 1924). True first edition, preceding that of the UK. The fourth of five Richard Hannay novels, who previously featured in 'The Thirty Nine Steps' published in 1915. Original grey cloth with red lettering to spine and upper panel. Previous owner name inscription to front endpaper with blindstamp of the Library of Thomas D. Eisele to rear endpaper. Boards and spine in excellent condition with trivial traces of isolated rubbing here and there and a very minor knock to top corner of lower board. Contents lovely and clean. The original and unrestored dust jacket has been price-clipped with some chipping and rubbing to extremities, mainly to head and foot of spine panel; closed tear to head of upper panel with very mild traces of soiling to lower panel and spine panel. A very good example indeed and uncommon in the dust jacket.
