New York: Lion Books, 1953. First Edition. New. Item #188
First Printing. A Near Fine, unread copy of Thompson's seventh paperback original. Very faint trace of rubbing to the extremities, along the center of the front hinge, and a tiny area at the crown of the spine. The yellow edgestaining is even, the interior is clean, and the artwork on both covers is free from creasing or wear. One of the more difficult of the earlier Thompson's to find in collectible shape, telling the story of an entire town conspiring against a teenage boy, falsely accusing him of rape and murder.
