Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1971. First American edition in hardcover in a first issue jacket, with a code of 971 at the top right corner of the front flap, and a price of $5.50 at the bottom of same. Near Fine in a bright, Near Fine dust jacket. Bookplate on the front endpaper; jacket is a bit rubbed at the folds. Overall, an unusually sharp copy of one of the scarcest Travis McGee hardcover titles.
