Description

    Tom Lea. A Grizzly From the Coral Sea. El Paso: Carl Hertzog, 1944. First edition. Limited to 295 copies, then the type and plates were subsequently destroyed. Inscribed by Tom Lea and signed by Carl Hertzog. 8vo, 32 pages. Green cloth over boards. Gilt lettering to spine. Illustrated endpapers by Tom Lea. Illustrations by Lea. Fore edge of pages uncut. The dust jacket has some tearing and staining, but overall this edition is in good condition.

    This short prose work (Lea's second book) draws from his experiences aboard the USS Hornet. This scarce title wasn't reprinted until 1988, and it remains a highly sought-after item for collectors of both Tom Lea and Carl Hertzog.

    Reference: Lowman 25B.
