New York: Crime Club, 1944. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine / Good. Bound in original gray cloth, lettered in black to the front panel and spine. The dust jacket is chipped at the spine ends and has a piece missing from the bottom right corner of the front panel. A wartime issued volume, now quite rare in good condition. First Edition stated on the copyright page. A very nice copy of the book in a somewhat less than ideal jacket.
