Rust cloth, lettered in gilt. Mere hints of rubbing at extremities, essentially as issued. Dust jacket shows approx. 1" closed tear with associated creasing at top front joint and approx. 1/2" chip along top front edge, otherwise only mild shelf wear, now in archival mylar. xi,219 pp., illus. Inscribed on front flyleaf: "For our good Wynnewood neighbors, Elvera and Walter Buckley, with all best wishes, Claiborne Hale." We assume this to be the author's inscription, given that his full name was Nathanial Claiborne Hale (1903-1983) and that he wrote, among other things, a biography of William Claiborne, though it seems curious that he should be using his middle name in signing copies of a book published under his first name.
