The Innocence of Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton 1st / 1st 1911

The Innocence of Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton 1st / 1st 1911


First UK edition and first print published by Cassell in 1911. This is a near fine copy. The deep red boards are not faded at all with an even tone across the boards and spine. There is a fade mark to the front board across the R in Brown within the gilt titling. The text block is free from marks and foxing as are the pages inside. There is a previous owner's name of the front free endpaper and also a bookplate of noted collected Christian Heuer. The book is housed in its own presentation box that is in smark condition also. Overall a near fine copy.
