This was a find from an estate sale this past weekend. I liked the cover and the subject. It was printed by the A. L. Burt company. Copyright 1927. When doing research the first edition is from 1927, but all of them were red linen hardbacks with a dust jacket. This one is green, no dust jacket, but a printed, glued on illustration the same as the dust jacket on the red copy. Inside there are some numbers and initials in pencil. So is this a first edition? A much later edition? Do the pencil marks mean anything? I am totally stumped on this and can't seem to find any like it.
