New York: Dell Publishing, 1965. True Crime/Documentary. FIRST DELL PRINTING. Octavo, pp159; , advertisement. Publisher's softcovers, all edges tinted green. Pages slightly tanned as expected, slight wear to head of spine else a lovely fine copy. An interesting edition; boldly advertised as the 'First Popular-Priced Edition', rather than the first paperback edition (which is wasn't!), and unashamedly mimicking the design of Signet's then-current James Bond paperbacks novels, this is the first of several printings from the Dell Publishing Company, whose rather cynical marketing proved successful.
