Condition: See description

New York: Rinehart & Company, 1947. Hardcover. Illustrations by the author. 8vo. Light blue cloth with white and dark blue spine lettering, pictorial dust jacket. 268pp. Line drawings. Near fine/very good. Mild jacket edgewear, with couple of tiny edge chips. Just a tight and handsome book club edition of this comic novel about (to cite front jacket panel) "a shy professor in a southern theological seminary [who] accidentally acquires the power of taking life by a modest digital gesture" -- but with a choice autograph twist: Tipped to the front flyleaf is a heavy stock 5" X 3" card signed huge and bold in blue fineline by Tom Poston (1921-2007), the prolific comic film and television actor who starred in the 1962 film version of this book. He dates the card 27 January 1970 at upper right. Fine. Laid in is the perfect bookmark -- the original transmittal envelope for this signature and also the BOMC promotional leaflet for this title.
