Chicago: M.A. Donohue & Co., (1922). First edition thus, first printing. The Universal Film Company Special Movie Edition. Large octavo. Hardcover. Wear to edges, rubbing to covers, some mild soiling to blue cloth shelfback and a dot of stain to lower page edges, faint scattered foxing within, a few spots of soil within; thus very good plus; in clothbacked pictorial boards; no dust jacket. 
Lovely movie tie-in issue, with blue monochrome stills from the 1922 film reproduced on coated stock inserts, b&w intext drawings, monochrome endsheet art, and a smashing full-color title-page painting. Harry Myers and Noble Johnson starred.

3 (Defoe, Daniel). Curtis, Laura A. THE ELUSIVE DANIEL DEFOE
(London and Totowa, NJ): Vision and Barnes & Noble, (1984). 0389200638 / 9780389200635 First edition, first printing. In the Critical Studies Series. Hardcover. Fine, in textured orange boards with gilt spine titling; in a fine, if faintly age-toned, pictorial dust jacket. 216 pages, including index. 
This study addresses itself to the problem of Defoe's consciousness, arguing that the peculiar ambivalence characterizing his writing results in large part from contradictory drives within the writer himself.
