Tight and VG (light offsetting to the endsheets, small former owner name at the front pastedown (with a name below it scratched out)) in a bright, price-clipped, VG dustjacket, which shows very light soiling and creasing and chipping --and several tiny closed tears-- along the panel edges, light chipping to the tips and the spine ends, and a neat former owner name at the edge of the front flap. 12mo, the tell-all autobiography of this legendary Pentecostal evangelist and media star of the 1920s and 30s.
