New York: The Macmillan Company, 1915. 284p., line map (otherwise, no plates whatsoever), publisher's ads (for others in the Deal series), first edition blue cloth boards with pictorial elements in white and gilt. Casing and textblock are somewhat shaken and worn, cover image slightly flaked but not at all obscured. What we like here, in this copy, is the ownership presentation inscription, datelined 1926, reading "To my Valentine / Arnold / from Willard". The fictional school, Deal, is prominently noted to be in the vicinity of Princeton (home of the eponymous backrub, it may be recalled).
