So Big by Edna Ferber, Vintage 1947 Book, 1st Printing
For sale here is a vintage 40s So Big by Edna Ferber hardcover book with dust jacket; a Pulitzer Prize winning novel. This Forum Books Edition states “First Printing January 1947”. It’s not an original first printing as the story was released in 1924. However, it is a first printing of this later Forum Books edition. It measures 8.25″ by 5.75″ and has 360 pages. The dust jacket is in fair/poor condition with wear, creases, tears and staining/discoloring as well as a big piece missing from the back (seen in pic). The hardcover has bumped corners, staining/discoloring, wear and some edge fraying. The two pages before the title page have a piece torn from the top and the title page has a small 1″ tear at the top. The pages are very browned. There are no other tears and no dog-ears or writing either. This edition of So Big by Edna Ferber would be a great, classic vintage book to add to a book collection!
