Collectible Book in Very Good or better condition with a tight binding and clean crisp pages. Inside text appears unread. The interesting thing about this book is that it has 'FIRST PRINTING DO NOT REMOVE" stamped on 7 pages in this book- this includes the first 4 pages and the last 3 pages? I am going to assume that this was a Salesman's Copy? Outside cloth covers are very nice. Dust Jacket is in Very Good Plus condition with some minor edge chipping and is now covered by a new clear mylar cover. Dust Jacket is NOT price clipped ($1.50). Great collectible! Much of the book takes place in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
