Near Fine Review copy of this memorable collection of stories with "Review Copy / Publication Date / February 6, 1936 / Price $2.50" stamp on free front endpaper. The green cloth has faded to gray-green (a common factor with this title), and there are a few minute chips and a bit of rubbing to the dj, else quite an attractive copy.
