This book's been around. Full cloth binding. Apparently a later printing. Inscribed and SIGNED by author: "To Dick eitner from his friend Jim Tully June 6, 1931 K. C. Mo a pleasant journey on the Santa Fe." The first letter on the second name, probably an L, was obliterated by a bullet fired through the book, I would judge a .22 caliber. It was one of two shots that hit the book. One hit the front cover about a third of the distance from the top edge, near the horizontal center point, and traveled at a radical angle to the left, exiting at the spine in the rear. This is the one that damaged the name in the inscription. The second bullet entered the fore-edge at about page 51 and, traveling at an angle that parallels that of the first, exited the rear cover 3 inches down from the top edge and 2 1/2 inches from the fore-edge. As is usual, the bullets left more of a mess where they exited than where they entered. Naturally, this kind of thing had a negative effect on the text, although the second bullet didn't cause significant damage to the print until page 196. In addition, the spine is faded and soiled and there is a general layer of soiling. Does the inscription indicate that Tully was on his way on the Santa Fe railroad to Hollywood? Perhaps. Despite having been shot twice, once through the heart and spine and once through the ribs, the book holds together well. To top it off, the cloth is worn through at the two bottom corners and just a trifle at the bottom edge of the spine. One wonders about the cause of the shooting. N° de réf. du libraire 4605
