Condition: Very Good with no dust jacket

McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc.. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1959. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 1562870203 . 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 311 pages; Dedicated and signed very boldly in black marker inside front cover, "For Betty Adams with every best wish and many thanks, Richard Condon" light bleed through to opposing half title page. Book bright and clean, straight and sharp. It plainly states McGraw Hill 1959 with FIRST EDITION on copyright page. Clearly it is not with speckled covers as one would expect however. I see no indication of a Book Club edition. In addition I was only able to find paperback book club printings. ; Signed by Author .
