First edition, later issue. Octavo, original red cloth titled in gilt on spine and front panel. 319 pp. Frontispiece and two (of three?) additional full-page black & white plates reproducing still images from the 1924 Douglas Fairbanks silent movie. This edition adds a nine-page Publisher's Note at the rear "Production Sidelights of 'The Thief of Bagdad,' by Arthur J. Zellner (Representing Mr. Fairbanks)" . The first printing of this title has four plates, this edition has three, but one does not appear to be removed, likely the publisher ran out of one of the plates. Minor loss to the lower margins of p. 111 (production fault), front free endpaper lacking, a very good bright copy otherwise. No dust jacket.
