by COOPER, John R

Condition: See description

New York: Cupples & Leon Company, 1947. Hardcover. Small 8vo. Red paper over boards with black lettering, pictorial dust jacket. 212pp. Frontispiece, patterned endpapers. Very good/very good. Faint binding edgewear and usual age toning to text block; jacket a bit edgeworn and lightly rubbed, with spine a bit sunned and several tiny edge chips. Possible first edition (this publisher does not indicate edition in any consistent, verifiable manner) of the second title in the "Mel Martin Baseball Stories" series, the first two of which were published by C & L before Garden City Publishing reissued then in 1952 and added four more titles to the series (1952-53). This is the uncommon original issue and likely the first edition.
