New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., 1943. Hard Cover. Very Good+ binding / Good dust jacket. Item #6693
Octavo. 428 pp., frontis, illus. First edition; review copy. In publisher's cloth with dust jacket. The binding is solid with limited shelfwear; title stamping and cover vignette have dulled with age; one page spread has offsetting from newspaper clippings that were laid in; two leaves have small creases in the margin at the bottom corner from being dog-eared; dust jacket is generally worn with closed tears at the front joint, minor chipping to the spine ends, and quarter-sized loss to the top of the front panel (not affecting title text); price intact on the bottom corner of the front flap. Laid in is a pre-publication TLS from John Macrae, Jr., Vice President of E.P. Dutton & Co to Ted Robinson of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. A very nice copy of an important and uncommon book by an American icon.
