GREEN HILLS OF AFRICA by Ernest Miller Hemingway Facsimile Dust Jacket for the first Scribner's Company Edition of this book (NO BOOK is included) No book is included. This facsimile dust jacket will also fit the very early reprints of this book. They should have lightish green cloth as the binding. It should also fit the very early Scribner's editions also...if you have a question, email me to get the size correct. This listing is for the facsimile dust jacket for the book stated. This is the facsimile of the FIRST STATE dust jacket for the book. (The second state jacket for this book is a bit different.) Digitally scanned and restored by fine artist John Anthony Miller and has been trimmed, enclosed in a Mylar jacket protector. It has been printed with pigment archival inks on 120GSM paper. With proper care they will last for at least 90 years or more. At the bottom of the rear jacket flap there is the artist's monogram "JAM" and the words "Facsimile Dust Jacket" tastefully printed, as shown. My later dust jacket work will have "John Anthony Miller Studio" on them. Again, tastefully stated. Please see the thumbnail photograph of the dust jacket, which will not be as sharp as the actual product. The jacket comes pre-folded and ready to put onto your book, with a Mylar protector. Additionally, this dust jacket has pencil signed signature on the VERSO of the jacket, stating that it is a facsimile dust jacket and signed by John Anthony Miller. This will make the dust jacket facsimile more collectible in my opinion as some people are collecting my dust jacket work to frame and it will stand on its own merit. If you want your facsimile dust jacket send unfolded for framing, please let me know. Also I can re-size any facsimile dust jacket to fit your particular book. Let me know the dimensions (ie: height, spine thickness and measurement across the front board in 1/16ths of an inch or centimeters) J. A. Miller, at Phantom Bookshop John Anthony Miller Studio of Graphic Arts Ventura, CA 805.218.3807 (Phantom Bookshop business telephone number 24/7) A few highlight comments about the art of John Anthony Miller, producing quality fine art with an eye detail since the late 1960's: His art is in collections of The Smithsonian Institution, Chicago Art Science Industry, The Carnegie Art Museum, Chicago Art Institute, Clarke Humanities Museum at Scripps College, President Obama, The Ambassador to The People's Republic of China and other notable people around the world. "John's unique artistry was evident as soon as I saw 'The Great Gatsby' dust jacket. Having seen scores of facsimile jackets, John's work is in a completely different league. The rich tonal quality of the colors is breathtaking and the weight of the paper is carefully considered. He satisfied the needs of the most demanding client, even during a personally trying time. I look forward to doing continued business with him in the future and give him my highest recommendation."
