Red cloth with gilt lettering, inscribed in the year of publication by the author to mystery writer Miriam Allen de Ford. Endpapers toned, particularly at rear, where a newspaper photo of the author was laid in, along with what appears to be the back flap of the dust jacket, which is otherwise not present. A nice association copy of a fairly scarce book.
