Book Description David Mckay, 1934. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Hardcover book is very good with shelfwear, lightly bumped corners, the light remnants of a bookplate on the first blank page and a bit of wear to the binding. There is no dust jacket (I believe it was issued without one). A nice example of a scarce book. This book cannot be shipped to Canada or Russia. Expedited international shipping is not available. The delivery expectation for international shipping is 7-32 business days, depending upon customer location. Bookseller Inventory # 008554
