THE SCARF. New York: The Dial Press, 1947. Octavo, boards. First edition. The author's second book and first novel. The first person narrative of a serial killer. The inevitable tanning to the pulpy paper stock (mild in this case), faint damp stain along bottom edges of front and rear panels, a very good copy in bright, very good dust jacket with touch of wear at spine ends and corner tips, two light scratches to rear panel, and a hint of dust soiling to rear panel. A nice copy overall. (#156968).
No statement of printing.
