Garden City, NY: Doubleday and Company, 1952. First U.S. Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine / Near Fine. Item #005274
8vo., 189pp. Beautiful stated First Edition, (US). Square, tight and clean throughout with just a touch of wear at the spine ends and mild off-setting to endpapers. Equally attractive unclipped wrapper, ($2.50), has fairly minor edge-wear and rubbing but is fresh and bright with no chipping, creases or tears. A very pretty collectable copy of the author's first non-fiction work; observations recorded of the conditions in two British women's prisons during her incarceration. Basis for the 1953 "The Weak and the Wicked"
