The Island of Sheep. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co., 1920.

First Edition. Original illustrated boards, cloth spine, original illustrated dustjacket. The First American edition of this early Buchan title written with his wife, Susan. Nearly impossible Buchan title to be found in dustjacket. The book is unfortunately not an adventure novel, but a fictional examination of current events, in which "politicians, soldiers, labor leaders - American, French, and English in nationality... brilliantly discuss the most interesting current problems, the Peace Treaty, League of Nations, labor reform, etc." Near Fine, some soiling to top page edge, in Very Good plus dustjacket, few nicks to spine ends and flap corners.
