THIRTEEN MEN. New York: Claude Kendall, 1930. Octavo, pp. [1-14] 19-323 [324: blank] [note: text complete despite gap in publisher's pagination], illustrations, fifteen full-page, by Mahlon Blaine, original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold, top edge stained gray, pictorial endpapers. First edition. "Biographical sketches of a murderer and the twelve men composing his jury." - Hanna, A Mirror for the Nation 3491. "Thayer's THIRTEEN MEN is absolutely the strangest novel about a murder trial that any man, woman, or computer has ever written. It's not only an amazing book, it contains endpapers and interior illustrations by Mahlon Blaine. I was thus introduced to one of my favorite writers and one of my favorite illustrators in one glorious reading-and-seeing experience." - Richard Lupoff. A fine copy in very good pictorial dust jacket (illustrated by Mahlon Blaine) with with light wear and shallow chips along top and bottom edges. A scarce book. (#161369).
