New York: William Morrow, 1934. First Edition. Warmly INSCRIBED by the author on the front endpaper: "To Noni / With best from the boss / Erle Stanley Gardner." According to Dorothy Hughes' biography of Gardner, Noni Bibler was one of Gardner's early assistants.
Near Fine in a Very Good example of the scarce dust jacket. Jacket has a couple of neat repairs along two of the folds, with fading to the reds on the spine panel, and chipping at spine ends (affecting just a portion of the word "The" in the title). A very presentable copy of the fourth Perry Mason mystery, and a great association.
