Here is a wonderful copy of a much sought after title. This copy is a Franklin Deluxe Limited Edition with the tissue guard protecting the author's signature. Published in 1977 this copy is in oustanding condition.The book has never been read. However, it was previously owned by an elderly lady who while respecting the books, did not store them properly and thus there is some mottling of the gilt to the fore-edge and the top edge is slightly dusted. In this case these things do not really detract much from the beauty of the volume.This beautiful book is bound in full leather with ornate gilt ornamentation to both boards as well as the spine. The spine has raised hubs in the tradition of classic bookbinding and there is a fine satin bookmark sewn-in to the book. This edition, published by the Franklin Library is gilt on all edges. It contains a special introduction from Herman Wouk that appears in no other edition of this title. This offering also includes the 22 page booklet that accompanied the book on publication. The Caine Mutiny is a sea story plus. It is a colorful novel with two main strands. One is the story of Willie Keith, a sailor on board the USS Caine; the other is the strange triangle on the old destroyer-minesweeper Caine that results in the incredible fact of a mutiny aboard a United States Navy ship in World War II. The book is dramatic and thrilling as well as humorous. It is a fine piece of American writing that has transcended its time and place. A Wonderful addition to any collector's shelves. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
