The Mysterious Bookshop

Burnett, W.R. - Underdog

New York, Knopf, 1957.  Stated first edition. Blue boards with vivid orange and black dust jacket.  The underdog, Jerry Clinch, is a fall guy for murder and never had a break until Big Dan, the Big Boss, sprang him from prison to work as a chauffeur--and then things get complicated.  Near fine with sunning to DJ spine and slight discoloring to rear panel.  $35.00.
