A fine and beautiful copy of this twelfth title in the Travis McGee series and the first American hardcover. A first printing from Lippincott with, for you mystery collectors, the publisher code 372 and the price, $5.50 on the front flap of the dust cover.

The lightest of wear to the corners and points of the spine. Unmarked. Gorgeous lavender covers with gold titles. Dust cover has light wear along the edges and at the corners with a minute tear at the head of the spine.

One of the best copies I have come across.
