New York: Cosmopolitan Book Corporation, 1929. First Trade Edition. Octavo (8.75" x 6"); [viii], 246p. Printed dustjacket with original $3.99 price; book in green cloth with gilt lettering. Jacket separated cleanly down back spine fold, with a number of small chips and tears along edges and toning to spine. Large waterstain to boards on back and over spine, affecting top margin and down gutter of first few pages and bottom quarter of back endpaper, but not involving text, frontis photo, or jacket. Back hinge cracked with front starting at bottom, so boards open easily and shakily but binding is still holding. Pages waved at bottom with a few toned from previously laid-in slips, but with no marks. Not ex-library.
