FIRST EDITION IDENTIFIERS:

Metropolitan published this book on May 15, 1931. The boards are a maroon color and the lettering is a pale green. The dust jacket and frontispiece were illustrated by Hugh Hutton.

As is the case with a few other Burroughs' books, Grosset & Dunlap purchased excess first editions and published them with their name on the spine and dust jacket, however, the title page has "Metropolitan" on it. This second later offering is referred to as a "mixed edition". The lettering on the spine and cover is in black, not the pale green of the first edition.

In 1948 Burroughs, Inc. published this title as well. The book has tan covers and dark red lettering.
