Notes 1st edition/1st printing. "This is the story of an expedition - a strange and exciting expedition of one man and an army of women" (from DJ). First edition with the Rinehart colophone on the copyright page. Near fine book that is clean, straight & tight. The pages are all clean and white without any marks and there are no tears. There is just a bit of rubbing to binding at spine ends & lower corners from shelving, otherwise the book would be fine. The very good dustjacket is price intact ($2.50), clean, bright and crisp with the spine sunned as usual, a couple of vertically narrow just over 1/2" deep edge chips to upper front edge, some shallow edge chipping to lower front edge, and a few tiny edge nicks to lower spine end. A nice example of this scarce book and always rather fragile uncoated dustjacket, with the jacket now protected in a removable, clear mylar cover. ; 8" x 5 1/2"; 250 pages
