First edition, first issue with Rinehart monogram to verso of title page. Charts the descent of Stanton Carlisle from ambitious grifter to side-show geek. Memorably filmed with Tyrone Power in the lead, and Joan Blondell as Mademoiselle Zeena “The Woman who Knows.”

Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt on green ground, top edge dyed green. In the dust jacket. Tarot card line-drawings as chapter headers. Very lightly rubbed at extremities, a few faint spots to endpapers. An excellent copy in the rubbed jacket with some nicks and creasing to the ends of the spine and a few short splits.
