A 1936 copy, but not the first printing. In dust jacket with $2 price inside front flap and notation of 245 titles in the Modern Library on back flap. With three wood-engravings by Julian Wehr. This is the book that inspired the "Dead End Kids" films. The book itself is in fine condition with no defects other than very light age-toning along top edge. The jacket is good only with a 1" open tear on back, several smaller nicks along top edge and bottom of spine, darkened spine with several small chips and rubs, and light soiling to back.
