Description:

First separate US hardcover edition; Travis McGee #3. Dark blue paper covered boards slightly faded along top edge, tiny inked numeral at corner of front free endpaper, NEAR FINE in NEAR FINE dust jacket with several small rub marks along front flap fold and head of spine (would appear to be manufacture flaws NOT signs of abuse). Also present is what appears to be a TRIAL or PROOF wrapper which is identical to the published version in respects to front panel and spine but is blank on flaps and rear panel and is uniformly a distinctly different shade. Rear panel of this hybrid jacket shows some wear else it is NEAR FINE; possibly a unique form of the dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 1443
