First Edition Rare Hardcover book
"The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck - copyright 1931
This is a rare hardcover book called "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck. The copyright date is 1931, which I believe makes it a first edition copy. It is not signed by the author. Please note the condition of the pages. This is how it was manufactured. This is a wonderful story and a wonderful book. I have researched this book online to this price.
Please see the last picture noting the error of "flee" instead of "flea" on page 100, line 17 proving this is a 1st edition, 1st state book.
The following is information taken from Wikipedia: "The Good Earth is a novel by Pearl S. Buck published in 1931 and awarded the Pulitzer Prize for the Novel in 1932. The best selling novel in the United States in both 1931 and 1932, it was an influential factor in Buck's winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938. It is the first book in a trilogy that includes Sons (1932) and A House Divided (1935).
The novel of family life in a Chinese village before World War II was a best-seller in both 1931 and 1932 and has been a steady favorite ever since. In 2004, the book was returned to the best seller list when chosen by the television host Oprah Winfrey for Oprah's Book Club. The novel helped prepare Americans of the 1930s to consider Chinese as allies in the coming war with Japan."
