By Manly Wade Wellman. Cases include Naomi Wise, Ida Bell Warren, the kidnapping of Kenneth Beasley, Senator "Chicken" Stephens, and others. Seldom found at all, much less at this price point.
This hardcover appears to be a 1954 first, with a beat-up dust jacket that a previous owner repaired with tape (see pics). The inside boards have a previous owner's name, and a paste-up of a related clipping, which makes this copy unique. The book itself has only minor shelf- and cornerwear and the pages are quite bright, holding tight. A fine and sturdy addition to your research or rarities shelves.
