This softcover book is in exceptional condition except for a missing corner on the front wrap (see scan) and a little loss at the top and bottom of the spine. It is slightly cocked, probably from having been read but is still securely bound and attractive. For a paperback that originally sold for a dollar, this copy has held up well. ; B&W Woodcuts; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 199 pages; Rossa B.
