Second printing of the first edition hardcover in orange & brown cloth covered boards with brown title has rubbing at fairly sharp tips, slight 'ding' on frt board fore-edge. Spine ends rubbed, broken through the cloth, sounds worse than it looks. Tidy former name on fep. Hinges fine. Professionally reproduced, unclipped dj has chips at spine ends, tips and gutters, but still displays well in new mylar. 270 pp text is crisp, bright and unmarked. Here are the best of the graceful, witty, wonderful pieces by Joe H. Palmer, who was, until his death October 31, 1952, America's best known racing writer, and in the opinion of many the best writer of sports anywhere.
