Jafsie Tells All! Revealing the Inside Story of the Lindbergh-Hauptmann Case (Inscribed by Author and in Dustjacket)
by Dr. John F. Condon
New York: Jonathan Lee Publishing Corp, 1936. Cloth. Very Good/Good. LAVISHLY INSCRIBED BY DR. JOHN F. CONDON (REFERRING TO THIS BOOK AS "THE LAST VOLUME OF MY HONEST EFFORTS IN THE LINDBERGH CASE") TO RALPH HACKER, JOHN CONDON'S SON-IN-LAW, on the front free endpaper. A solid copy to boot of the 1936 1st edition --AND IN ITS UNCOMMON DUSTJACKET. Tight and VG in its blue cloth, with very light wear to the spine ends and light scuffing at the panels. The dustjacket, which shows heavy wear and a degree of loss along the edges, is missing roughly half of its spine. It merits a Good- to Good only but is still quite presentable and scarce, even as such. Octavo, 8 black-and-white photographs accompanying the text. Compelling, uncommon memoir by the retired New York City high school principal who found himself right in the middle of the Lindbergh case when the kipnapper(s), incredibly, responded to his offer --as communicated thru the classified section of a small, local Bronx newspaper-- to serve as a go-between. Condon emerged as one of the key figures in this extraordinary case and controversy, which he's here trying to put to rest, dogged him the rest of his life. (Inventory #: 13298)
