Octavo, 547pp, xiii. Rust orange cloth, spine in blue, title stamped in gilt on spine and blind stamped on cover. Top edge dyed red. Stated “first edition” on copyright page. Hinge at half-title starting to separate, an otherwise solid text block. In the publisher’s first state dust jacket, retail price on front flap, light toning to spine, foxing to verso, with archival reinforcement to short closed tears, an overall very good and bright example.

A unique collection of signatures including General Douglas MacArthur, his wife Jean MacArthur, the author and MacArthur’s son, Arthur MacArthur IV.
