THE OUTLAW OF TORN. Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co., 1927. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 1-298, original red cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First edition, first printing. Total of 6000 copies printed. There were at least two printings, second so identified on verso of title leaf. Exploits of Norman of Torn, the greatest swordsman in England and leader of an outlaw band of more than one thousand men. Heins OT-1. Owner's signature on front paste-down, private owner's embossed stamp on front free endpaper. Cloth soiled and worn at edges, spine lettering dull, stains to rear panel, inner rear hinge cracked, a poor copy in good four-color pictorial dust jacket (reproducing painting by J. Allen St. John on front panel) with small chips from lower corners of front panel, small external tape reinforcement at lower spine end, clean split along front flap fold, and some penciled lettering on inner surface (no show through). Overall a bright example with a very colorful front panel. The jacket is scarce and a bit of restoration would improve it considerably. (#151421).
