New York: Ballantine, (1953).
Hardcover. First edition. Faint black lines at the top and bottom of the boards from an old jacket protector, else near fine in an attractive jacket that would be fine but for some wrinkles on the rear panel caused by the shrinkage of the same protector. When the ruler of a vast range empire dies, his top hand is called upon to protect it. Scarce Ballantine hardcover.
