Small spot to spine. A few pages spotted and soiled, else free of previous owner's markings. Good minus, to good, condition. Wants dust jacket. Remember: when price-checking this book, relatively inexpensive copies will be offered with the claim that the book is a first edition, and/or was published in 1940 when, in fact, this Burroughs, Inc., edition was actually published in 1948. (Hint: any edition published by Burroughs, Inc., in a tan/gray binding is a reprint). Without the help of a thorough Burroughs' bibliography, such as Heins or Zeuschner, it is unfortunately easy for an uninformed bookseller to incorrectly describe this book. If in doubt-ask the dealer which bibliography was used to identify the book as a first edition. Cheaper is not always better.
