[moderate wear along spine, minor soiling to bottom edge, a little creasing in rear cover]. Trade PB (B&W halftone photographs) INSCRIBED at length and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "To _______ / My father's career is / the toughest act in history / to follow. This is / the story, as I picked / up the cards Fate dealt / and remember / With / Best / Wishes." (He has also added the note "soon to be a movie" at the top corner of the page, a hope that never materialized; in addition, laid in is his business card, with a Las Vegas address.) Very scarce memoir by the purported illegitimate son of the great heavyweight champion, the general tenor of which is set by the front-cover subtitle: "An Accursed Heritage." Think he had some issues? Hoo boy. Signed by Author
