Numbered 27 of 500 first edition copies. A bookplate for previous owner Herbert Claiborne Pell, Jr. is affixed to the front pastedown. Pell was a Congressman from New York and one of the main proponents for the United Nations War Crimes Commission after World War II. Additionally, the book has been specially presented to Pell, evidenced by a stamp on the colophon / copyright page and a gift inscription by B. Bielski and Paul Reboux (presumably the publishers) on the front flyleaf. The glassine cover shows wear, and has slightly discolored the boards in spots, and the book shows mild edge wear, else very good.
