Portland ME: Falmouth Book House. Near Fine in Very Good+ dj. 1938. First Edition. Hardcover. [the tiniest bit of dust-soiling to top edge, no other discernible wear; jacket has a couple of tiny closed tears at bottom of front panel, light wear to spine ends, a little bit of red staining (ink? paint? blood?) at top edge of rear panel]. (pen and ink drawings) "A sparkling, farcical satire on dictators and modern culture, [this book] is a story that for once allows mankind to look at itself with a smirk instead of shame. . . . Skillfully the author has created a puppet world, in counterpart of the earth, on an imaginary atomic planet. Events paralleling those of the earth are reduced to comic proportions, and a fast-moving story, involving action and romance, unfolded around the dictator, his cohorts and a girl named Neela." .
