A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing [a bit askew, some rubbing to the spine ends and board corners, front board's lower corner bumped, modest shelf wear to the board bottoms, some modest soiling to the boards -- no dust jacket] of the second novel in Booth Tarkington's Growth Trilogy [The Turmoil (1915), The Magnificent Ambersons (1918) and The Midlander (1923)], retitled National Avenue in 1927)]. Set in Indianapolis, The Magnificent Ambersons traces the growth of the United States and the simultaneous decline of the aristocratic Amberson family through three generations. The novel won the 1919 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was adapted for film three times, the most notable being the 1942 film written, directed, and narrated by Orson Welles and starring Joseph Cotten, Dolores Costello, Anne Baxter, Tim Holt, Agnes Moorehead and Ray Collins. A Very Good copy of this quite notable prize-winning novel.
