Notes: The hardcover version of the 7th Travis McGee novel, "the most difficult of all [Lippincott's] McGees to find" (Firsts Magazine, Nov. 2002). The novel was first published in paperback in 1966 and then in hardcover in the UK in 1967; this is the first American hardcover edition.
Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing, with no indication of later printing). Mild spine lean; large Marine Barracks stamp on the front pastedown, thus very good in a spine-faded dust jacket with a number of tears and snags. The jacket is the first printing jacket, priced at $4.95 with the 470 code at the top of the front flap. A decent copy of a book that is hard to find in nice condition.
Publication: Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1970.
