BEN HECHT

First Edition books

 

THE FRONT PAGE

Inscribed by Ben Hecht as well as Charles MacArthur; first edition, first printing, in original dust jacket.

 

 

Also inscribed by Lucile and James Gleason, both Hollywood actors in the 1920s.

 

 

Original dust jacket in very good condition, with several significant chips; the one on the lower right-hand corner of the front panel where Covici-Friede printed later editions.  Yet, all the other points of the dust jacket, including the printing on the front and back flaps exhibit first printing verbage.  Back panel has significant tear with conservation repair on back of jacket.

 

 

Still, we know of no other first American edition of this landmark Broadway play to have been inscribed by both BEN HECHT and CHARLES MacARTHUR.  (Please do not hesitate to show us otherwise.)

 

 

Book in very good condition: cloth boards slightly warped and lightly soiled; interior pages generally very good plus with several tiny spots of foxing here and there.

 

 

 

THE FRONT PAGE

By Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, 1st British edition, in original first printing dust jacket, 1929.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As far as we know, this is the only known example of the first British edition of THE FRONT PAGE in original dust jacket.  (Please contact us if you can exhibit another example.  We'd be pleased to see it.)

"... But never again as during that all too short period when he and I were one person, when the fulfilled future and the wistful past were mingled in a single gorgeous moment -- when life was literally a dream...."  F. Scott Fitzgerald, from 'Early Success,' The Crack Up, October 1937
