About This Item

Chicago: Century Publications, 1947. Original Wraps. Collectible; Very Good. The uncommon 1947 novelization of one of the great boxing films, starring John Garfield and Lilli Palmer. Tight and VG in its wonderful pictorial wrappers (with the blown-up faces of the 3 main stars adorning the cover). Just a touch of fading to the front panel, light wear at the spine ends and small, neat former owner signature and date on the title page. 12mo, 128 pgs. "The Smashing, Exciting Story of a Two-Fisted Guy That Women Go For. Illustrated with Scenes from the Movie"
