About This Item

New York: Sheridan House, 1949. Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. NICELY INSCRIBED BY MAE WEST on the front free endpaper. A solid copy to boot of the 1949 reprint. Tight and VG (very light, subtle staining along the rear panel's fore-edge) in a bright, VG dustjacket, with light chipping to the spine ends and along the tips, and very light creasing at the panel edges. Octavo, the novel (written by Mae West herself) upon which the 1928 Broadway play and the 1933 film (retitled "She Done Him Wrong") were based.
