Where The Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls. Doubleday & Company, 1961.
This is not a true first edition, but an early printing. 1961 is the only date. This is earlier than some as it does not have the ISBN number on the inner rear jacket flap above the "Printed in USA".
No names, no writing on flip through.
Dust Jacket is price clipped. Also bottom chip and rear tear to dust jacket.Spine of dust jacket has a number written on it.
