Description:
New York: John Day, 1931. First edition, first issue with "flees" for "fleas" on page 100, line 17 of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and masterpiece. Octavo, original brown cloth, brown topstain. Inscribed and dated by Pearl Buck on the half-title page. Buck also underlined the error "flees" on page 100, and marked it with an arrow on the left margin. It is interesting to note that Buck knew the first issue points and makes note of it. Near fine in the original dust jacket with some tape repairs to the verso. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Signed and inscribed examples of the first edition in the original dust jacket are rare.

"I can only write what I know, and I know nothing but China, having always lived there," wrote Pearl Buck. In The Good Earth she presents a graphic view of a China when the last emperor… Read More

Description:
London: Methuen & Co., 1931. First British edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and masterpiece. Octavo, original light brown cloth. Signed by Pearl Buck on the title page. Near fine in the rare dust jacket which shows light wear to the extremities with minute expert restoration. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Rare signed. Over eighty years have passed since The Good Earth won the Pulitzer Prize, it has retained its popularity and become one of the great modern classics. "I can only write what I know, and I know nothing but China, having always lived there," wrote Pearl Buck.
