Hard Cover. First Edition. Signed.

This First Edition copy without marks, other than the author’s signature. Lacking the dustjacket.~~Hickman Powell spent most of his career as a journalist, taking a leave of absence from the New York Morning World in 1929 to travel the globe for a year. This, his first book -- a well-received account of the history and customs of Bali -- was the result. With rather racy illustrations and photographs. Signed “Cordially | Hickman Powell | June, 1930” on the half-title page.
Very Good binding.
