New York: Harcourt Brace, (1931). First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine / Near Fine. Original blue cloth, decorated and lettered in black. Clinton Balmer illustrated the dust jacket, the endpapers and nine full page black lined scenes. No indication of printing other than the 1931 copyright date. The list of books published by the author lists only the four he had already written. Likewise, the titles listed on the rear panel of the jacket by Meader and others all were published prior to or in 1931. If this isn't a first then it was at worst a later issue in the same year of 1931. Top edge stained red. A lovely copy with minor edge-wear to the spine ends of the jacket. Extremely scarce.
