First edition, first printing. Rushed out within two months of the death of the notorious couple in a roadside ambush in Louisiana, this sensational "ghosted" joint biography - drawing credibility but very little new information from the families - was one of the primary sources of the romantic legend of Bonnie and Clyde. A bright copy in the striking pictorial jacket.
Octavo. Original red cloth lettered in black on spine and front cover, black endpapers. With dust jacket.
Dual portrait frontispiece and tailpiece.
A couple of tiny marks to bright cloth, faint foxing to book block edges, contents clean and bright; a near-fine copy in the jacket with minor nicks to spine ends and tips.
