- The Children by Edith Wharton.
A first edition from September 1928.
Unsure if it’s a first or second issue as there seems to be a lot of confusion as to what makes up the first issue. Most say that the 1 on the last page indicates a first issue.
This copy has the (1) on the last page, “moters” on page 135, line 14, “sensible” on page 122 is unbroken and line 23 starts with “when“, ends with “racking“.

- Short Description.
On a cruise ship between Algiers and Venice Martin Boyne, a bachelor in his forties, befriends a band of ebullient, precocious children. The seven Wheater stepbrothers and sisters, grown weary of being shuttled between mother and father 'like bundles', are eager for their parents' latest reconciliation to last. They are kept together as a 'family' by the eldest, Judith, who takes on the role of protector. Genuinely outraged at the plight of the 'homeless' and fought-over children, Boyne finds himself increasingly drawn to their enchanting, improper and liberating ways. Among the colourful cast of characters are the Wheater adults, who play out their own comedy of marital errors; the flamboyant Marchioness of Wrench; and the vivacious fifteen-year-old Judith Wheater, who captures Martin's heart. With deft humour and touching drama, Wharton portrays a world of intrigues and infidelities, skewering the manners and mores of Americans abroad.
