Good Condition
 

This auction is for an inscribed, hardcover edition of the renowned historian, Will Durant’s imminent work, The Story of Civilization (Part 1, Our Oriental Heritage), published by Simon & Schuster (1st edition) in 1935. 

 

The dust jacket is quite worn with large chips and edge tears (see photo).  The black cloth, gold-decorated boards have light wear, no frays.  There is a partial crack in the binding at the front hinge (see photo), but the binding is good. 

 

The book is inscribed “To Mrs. Ellsworth Eliot from Will Durant 11-29-38” with an old-fashioned ink pen (see photo).
