Book Description Willett, Clark & Company, Chicago, 1935. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Beautiful First Printing, square tight and clean throughout with little or no wear. Board edges just starting to sun but a remarkably well preserved copy. Equally brilliant and extremely rare original unclipped wrapper has some top edge-wear and some shallow scratches along the bottom front panel and spine. A tiny bit of rubbing to the tips. Still, this is a bright and fresh example with no chipping or tears and extremely difficult to find in any condition and this one is simply stunning. Protected with an archival-quality mylar cover. Bookseller tag of the Beacon Book & Gift Shop, New Britain CT, on the rear paste-down. Seller Inventory # 003075
