Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1977. Hardcover. 194p., first edition cloth boards in dust jacket; hardcover item. A lower-edge remainder mark has bled into the textblock, jacket is a little scratched and spine panel has a short tear at the tail, good copy. An unobtrusive ownership signature reads "J. Lowenthal," and because the item turned up amongst multiple copies of linguist John Lowenthal's analysis of Venona, we assume this to be from the same linguist's library.
