Previous owner's initials inked on ffep. Edges of jacket slightly chipped, slightly shaken between some sections, otherwise very good. From the inner jacket flap: "He was born to be a rover; he willingly endured hardship in his quest for adventure. Yet he ended up a rich man, turned into a successful film star against his will. Victor McLaglen is a man who has lived two to almost everyone else's one, a man who has worked and played in every corner of the world, who left school to join the Life Guards at fourteen, who worked his way round the world. In turn he was soldier, farmer, miner, gold prospector, policeman, wrestler, boxer, vaudeville actor, pearl fisher, sign writer, physical training instructor, heavyweight challenger for the British title, big-game hunter, trader and film star."
