    Smitty with Dust Jacket (Cupples and Leon, 1928) Condition: FN. In the last few years, one of the most important developments in comics collecting has been the increased scholarship and interest in Platinum Age Comics. Offered here is a keen Cupples and Leon hardcover volume from 1928, Smitty. Noted by Overstreet as being the earliest of the Smitty reprint volumes, creator Walter Berndt's strip was one of the most popular of its day. This is a wonderful copy. Binding is tight, paper quality remains excellent, no spine lean, spine fully intact; overall grade is Fine. There is a bit of light corner 'bumping' and some cover edge on the covers. The dust jacket is complete -- no taping, no fading; overall grade is Good. Some expected edge/corner wear, few small edge tears, bit of chipping at top/bottom of spine. Really attractive and superior copy. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
