Thomas Nelson and Sons, c1918, hardcover with 'Good-Luck' swastika on front, hard-cover with blue

Fair Condition, some edge and shelf wer with cracked hinge, bumped and rubbed edge and corners, some loose pages (see photographs)

"Thomas Nelson & Sons published some books with a dextrogyre swastika on the cover. 
This has nothing to do with the nazi logo and is prior to the nazi period.

The swastika was familiar and trendy in Europe and especially in UK at the end of 19th century and beginning of 20th used as a sign of good luck in many sectors such as companies, publishers, sport teams, pendants, greeting cards, lucky charms, etc... See image on the right for the Nelson's explanation."
