Max Jones and John Chilton
First American Edition

8vo (331 pages, illustrated (with photographs)
Hardcover (with Dust Jacket) [Black cloth]
Officially, this was Armstrong's "authorized" biography; he worked with the authors to tell it "as it really was," and it is full of solid detail. This is a very good copy of the First American edition, in dust jacket. Contents fine.
