First impression. No edition stated, but the two key indicators are present: the jacket design is credited to M. McKnight Kauffer instead of E. McKnight Kauffer and on page 21 we have Chocktaw for Choctaw - both errors corrected in later printings. Quarter bound in black cloth stamped in gilt on the spine with sides of grey cloth boards. Grey wash top to book block. A clean, unmarked copy in a tight binding and unclipped dust jacket. The protected dust jacket has a couple of closed nicks at the head of the spine and is a touch rubbed at the edges with a small chip at the top of one flap.
