New York: The Macmillan Company. Very Good- in Fair dj. 1939. 1st U.S. edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . (price-clipped) [ex-lending library book, worn but intact, markings confined to pocket on front pastedown and remnants of label on ffep; jacket heavily edgeworn, moderately soiled, top 1-1/2" of spine missing (but not affecting spine text), torn and ragged along top edge (more so to rear panel); see note about wrap-around cover]. "The author of the famous novels of Jewish life, the Claudia and Gollantz books, has this time written the story of a man who was not a Jew, but who pretended to be one because he felt it would be an asset in business." (NOTE that this copy has an interesting "bonus" feature, namely a printed wrap-around paper cover (sort of a dust jacket under the actual dust jacket) that bears the name of the lending library (Ramona Rental Library, Los Angeles) along with ads for a number of local businesses.) .
