U.S. Brandon House Books. #2023. Second Brandon House Edition. Mass Market Paperback. About Good. Water Tchd. 
May, 1967. $125 is the original price. 248 pages. White paper. Tight binding. Translator: Alexander, Mark.
Front Cover: Several creases are at the top right corner and one small one's at the bottom corner. The usual crease's beside the Spine side from book opening and a small " tear's at the bottom of the Spine side.
Spine: A couple of creases from book opening and general wear.
Back Cover: Several large creases are at the bottom left corner, a small " one's at the top right corner and a few handling marks.
In General: The first forty pages have a small upturn at the top right corner of the pages and the first and last pages plus the insides of both Covers are a bit dirty as if someone dropped them on the floor. I'll clean up what I'm able to. Some pages were folded at the tops as bookmarks and some pages have a bit of ink or dirt at the bottom. I straightened the corners as was best possibe.
Story: Brandon House specializes in publishing these "sensational" types of books. Usually what they publish is well-written and some of their Authors and Brandon Books, per se, are collected because of their writing style and are quite Collectible and pricey.
When I started to browse this book I was under the impression it would be simply a Memoir or Autobiography but I'm not certain what to make of it as it seems to be an erotic bit of writing combined with Notes from her own writings as it reads in parts like a Sexy novel so I presume it's been "Doctored".
In any event she was sentenced to death for Spying and executed. Judge the book for yourself by whatever criteria you use. 004596
