Very cool old book by the author of Moby-Dick; it is in very good condition other than the inside of front and back cover. (The outside cover slightly faded).

Thank you Betsy...I received my book uber fast! I had no sooner placed my order and there it was shipped and in the mail! Betsy is very knowledgeable and fun to chat with. I have purchased previously from Betsy's shop and was very impressed with the care taken in the wrapping and shipping of my items. Always timely and lots of TLC!
