New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, 1948. 254p., first edition openweave cloth boards. Backstrip is very sunned, the rose colored cloth has turned white and the top edge is frayed, doubtless weakened by sunlight. Also expect shelfwear with minute fraying at one corner; a former owner has signed the menu of previous Caldwell titles; and there is a small splotchy oil-stain affecting pp.229/236. In all other respects a sound copy, which Caldwell himself has autographed on the ffep, a nice forceful signature.
