    Roberts, Kenneth:  Northwest Passage (Limited Edition).  New York: Doubleday Doran & Co., 1937. First Signed Limited Edition. Both volumes are in fine condition in reddish cloth covered boards with gilt text stamping on the spine and gilt top edges to the text blocks. Both are small quartos of 9 3/8 by 6 1/4 inches with Yale University Library book plates on the front paste downs. (Each book plate is noted that this title is a duplicate of what was in the library at that time and neither volume bears any other library markings.) Both volumes are in their original decorated, paper, unclipped dust jackets which are in very good+ condition with a 1/2 inch deep chip at the upper edge of the spine area of volume II and volume I has 1/2 inch "V" shaped chip at the base of the spine area. Both jackets are tanned on their spine areas. Volume I contains the first trade edition version of Kenneth Robert's Northwest Passage which remained on the best seller list for many months. It is the account of the life of Major Robert Rogers (founder of Roger's Rangers) as seen through the eyes of a fictional protagonist. Volume II contains "the unique historical material on which the essentials of the novel were based" to include a transcript of the courts martial trial of Major Rogers which was held in Montreal in 1768. Volume one is signed by the author on a specially tipped in page and numbered 228 out of only 1,050 copies printed. Both volumes are contained in a good original, paper covered slip case which is rubbed in many areas and the top panel is creased and shows closed tears to the joints and has a one inch coffee (?) stain to one of the paper labels. An very handsome and collectible set and quite uncommon in original dust jackets.
