Island of the Lost First Edition
#1
I have two copies of Island of the Lost, Staples Press, London, both state First Published in Great Britain 1953, Copyright 1949, by Harcourt Brace and Company, Inc. Internally they are identical. One copy is covered in Blue Cloth, lettered in Gold, with the Staples Logo on the bottom right front, the other copy has red boards lettered in white, the spine ends are identical, but no logo on front cover, both are original bindings, does any one know which binding would be considered the first state?

I'm pretty sure that this is in Currey. But, maybe the UK edition isn't in there.

Hmmm. Pretty tricky.

Mine is blue. I think Andre's was too. I didn't take the jacket off of hers when I photographed it. That probably isn't any help. I would lean toward the blue as first state, but then again that's what I have, :bg: Later kind folks--Paul
