From the Book Back
To residents of Manhattan, it was just another blistering hot day in August. No one knew that on that day death, in the form of a ghostly exodus of flea-bitten rats from a tramp steamer in from the Cameroons, had moved silently into the streets of New York. But more than a repetition of the ghastly plague, the Black Death, which struck the world in the Middle Ages, who loose on Manhattan. For behind it was the enemy that had unleashed it and a willing underworld that had joined forces with them in an attempt to wipe out the whole of the biggest city on earth!
Epidemic! by Frank G. Slaughter. From the First Printing by Permabooks in 1962. It measures 6-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ and has 277 pages inked in wine color on three sides.
See scan above. The covers have some handling/storage and there is a curve and reading line about center on the spine. The pages are toning from age but are in good condition. No names or markings. From clean, smoke-free home.
Generally sent the same day payment arrives. Unless you request otherwise, I will wrap the book in plastic wrap to help protect it from the elements, create a custom-made cardboard box to ship it in, and send via Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation tracking. See the shipping page for the cost to send a one-pound Media Mail package. Insurance is an additional cost as described. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
If you’d like more information or photos, please feel free to contact me. If you don’t like the price, make an offer!
