New York: Blue Ribbon Books, 1930. Mata Hari (b.1876, executed 1917) was the stage name for a Dutch exotic dancer who has entered modern mythology as a famously scandalous seductress and spy; whether she was guilty of the charges is still an open question. This is a Very Good copy of the Reprint Edition of Major Coulson's version of the truth. Maroon cloth binding with gilt lettering on the spine. Clean text; 312 pages. Endpapers a bit foxed and a bump to one corner. The dustjacket is striking, a line drawing of the lady in performance before an enthralled military audience. Spine a bit darkened, some chipping and creasing. In an archival plastic protector. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Reprint.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. Dust jacket present.
