[nice clean copy, minimal shelfwear, spine the slightest bit turned; jacket lightly browned at spine and at inside edges of flaps, very slight wear at corners, some soiling to rear panel but otherwise very attractive, NO tears or chips]. Good-looking copy of the true first edition of this title (preceding the Houghton, Mifflin American edition), a posthumous collection of eight early stories that the author referred to as his "cannibalized" work, by which he meant "that in later life he sometimes used episodes and characters from them in the full-length novels which made him famous." In addition to the title story, the volume includes: "Bay City Blues"; "No Crime in the Mountains"; "Mandarin's Jade"; "The Lady in the Lake"; "Try the Girl"; "The Curtain"; and "The Man Who Liked Dogs."
