New York: Jonathan Lee, 1936. Falk, Nat (Cover Art). First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 5 3/4 X 8 1/2 Inches. 238 Pages. Very Good / Good. Item #104
Original 1936 First Edition in the original dust jacket! The only memoir published by a true insider of the Charles Lindbergh kidnapping scandal. Dr. John F. Condon (Jafsie from his initials J.F.C.) acted as the intermediary between the kidnapper, Bruno Hauptmann and Charles Lindbergh. He was the only witness in the case who had ever met the kidnapper and therefore was able to positively I.D. Hauptmann in particular. A rare find this condition. Book bears a PO note of purchase amount in 1981 on the inside front board. Slight wear and soiling to spine. The original dust jacket is price-clipped. The jacket also bears several small chips and is worn and scuffed, especially at folds. Overall, a nice copy at the right price.
