Description:

Once upon a time, "Doc" Green would come by our store to drop off a few copies of his book and hang around long enough to tell us a few of his stories in person. A pleasant memory of many years in our book store. This is a fine, hardback copy of the 1st edition, inscribed and signed "Best wishes to . Dr. Ben K. Green." The usual narrow darkened strip around the edges of the pastedowns. The d/j has wear to the edges but makes a bright appearance in mylar cover. Bookseller Inventory #
