Original glossy white cloth on boards. Gilt spine title. Cover soil, edge and joint wear. Previous owner's name. Endpapers tanned. Interior clean, complete, and readable. Quite scarce. The author was a physician with a hobby. For a devastating review of this book, look up Edgar Allan Poe's take on it. The Great Descender is a tribute to Sam Patch, who jumped the 75-foot falls in Passaic River in 1827, and lost his life in a 125-foot jump at Genesee Falls in 1829. 292 pp.
