Black cloth spine over printed paper covered boards with printed paper spine and cover labels still bright. Illustrated with woodcuts by Arvia MacKaye. A story-poem of Kentucky legend working the racy idiom of mountain speech into a cadence of unusual strength and beauty. Signed by the author Percy Mackaye on front free endpaper. No other writing internally, no book-plate, etc. Patterned paper covered boards darkened at extremities and showing very mild wear. A very nice copy of this scarce first edition, signed by author.
