About This Item

A nice copy in a price-clipped jacket with minor wear at the spine. Inscribed by Ley to Nathan Weinberg, dated Sept 1 1949 (book publication is listed as Sept 1949 on verso of title page). No mention of later printings, as was standard for Viking first printings of this period. Tissue inserts present protecting the color endpaper illustrations. Jacket in mylar protector. Very uncommon signed, particularly in the month of publication.
