About This Item

McHugh's exceedingly scarce first novel. At the time of listing this, I can find no other copies of this title online. McHugh is known for several later works including I Am Thinking of My Darling, a novel about a plague of happiness striking NY; Caleb Catlum's America, which Robert Heinlein claimed was one of his inspirations for Time Enough for Love; and poetry, both his own and translated from the Chinese. This book is near fine, with a good condition jacket which is slightly frayed, taped in several places and slightly discolored on the spine. The jacket presents well. There is slight fading of the cloth on the top edge, and the spine is bumped. See pictures. Previous owner's discreet inscription on FFE. More pictures available on request: I'm running into a glitch in the uploading process for the pictures.
