Great collection of nine book club editions of 1930s/40s-era bestsellers. If you're into classic film, you'll probably recognize some of these titles; several were adapted into movies.

Boards are in shades of red, blue, and green and look great displayed together. If you prefer to display them with the original dust jackets, all are present and have great cover art typical of 40s-era illustration.

Most are fiction, a few are popular non-fiction. Titles include:

▶ My Sister Eileen by Ruth McKenney. Red boards, smaller size. Blue and yellow jacket features a still from the movie starring Rosalind Russell.

▶ The Egg and I by Betty MacDonald, 1945. Rust red-orange boards. Robins egg blue jacket.

▶ Green Dolphin Street by Elizabeth Goudge, 1944. Burgundy red boards. Jacket is quite tattered, particularly at spine edges.

▶ Hotel Berlin '43 by Vicki Baum, 1943. Burgundy red boards. Red, blue, and black jacket.

▶ Earth and High Heaven by Gwethalyn Graham, 1944. Navy blue boards. Pinkish red jacket.

▶ Liberty Street by I.V. Morris, 1944. Grey-blue boards. Turquoise blue jacket.

▶ The Snake Pit by Mary Jane Ward, 1946. Aqua blue boards. Green jacket.

▶ A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, 1943. Deep blue-green boards. Black jacket.

▶ The Building of Jalna by Mazo de la Roche, 1944. Green boards. Black and yellow jacket.

Books show varying degrees of wear. Some have light spots and stains. Dust jackets are all intact, though many are tattered and torn. Most measure about 5 1/2" x 8". If you would like more details about the condition of any specific title(s), please ask.
