Blue boards with gilt lettering to spine and Russian architectural graphic to front cover. Light wear to corners and edges. Jacket is worn at the spine ends and corners, with a few tears and creases. A one-inch piece is missing from the bottom edge of the front panel. The jacket is now protected in a Mylar cover to prevent further damage. From the jacket: " A tale of death and betrayal in the Jewish Ghetto of Brest-Litovsk during the Russo-Japanese War." The central character, "a deserter from the Tsar's army, is torn between a compulsion to expiate his 'sin' by confession to his friends in Brest-Litovsk and his desire to escape to a new life in America." Inscribed by the illustrator (a practicing architect in Austin, Texas at the time this book was published) on the front free endpaper: "To the Tsar and Tsarina of Travis County, Bubi Jessen."
