Brown dust rubbed, a few small spots of surface abrasion to spine and rear panel, minor scuffing at spine heel, flap fold ends nicked; dj now presented in a mylar Brodart protector. Brown cloth spine with green cloth boards, some rubbing/dulling to spine lettering. Several faint spots upon top edge; a few bottom page corners bumped; very light slender moisture stain evident near top of fore-edges of pages i-vi. Olive endpapers; Foreword; section of b/w plates on unpaged leaves; Bibliographical Note; Notes; Index. The first of a three volume biography of General Douglas MacArthur by Mississippi State University historian D. Clayton James with his five-line inscription to MSU historian and administrator Dr. John Bettersworth (author of PEOPLE'S COLLEGE: A HISTORY OF MISSISSIPPI STATE among other books) dated July 1, 1970 and familiarly signed "Jim James" (which was how he was known among fellow faculty) on front free endpaper. UNFORTUNATELY JAMES' INCRIPTION IS OBSCURED BUT STILL LEGIBLE UNDER SEVERAL SWATHS OF BLACK MARKER AS WAS BETTERSWORTH'S FAVORED METHOD OF MARKING HIS BOOKS BEFORE CULLING HIS PERSONAL LIBRARY. Else a very good copy in a very good dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory #
