All I Could Never Be, Nichols, Beverley
61 Nichols, Beverley All I Could Never Be
New York Dutton 1952 First American Edition hardcover 

Very good in a rubbed & edgeworn dust jacket (in fresh mylar protector) with both spine folds having long, neat tears starting at the bottom, also a couple of closed horizontal tears on the spine; penmark atop front inner flap; a cup or something similar was set on the rear of the jacket & the rear cover of the book has a trace of residue underneath. Despite the jacket flaws, it will look quite decent in our fresh mylar protector.
