Book appears to be signed by famous Nazarene Missionary Everett Otis Chalfant on the front endpaper, but the handwriting is very difficult to read. The top line appears to begin with "to ... " then end with "Best? ... E. O. Chalfant" Appears to be dated September 1951 which would put it in the same year as the book was published. There is also some other writing that looks to be an address. First Edition / 1st Printing. In very good shape with light wear to cover. No markings to text. In a good dust jacket with some wear and small tears along edges. I'm not sure if the dust jacket ever had a price or not. Protected in removable mylar DJ cover. Stored inside the book were also 4 cards with the family's picture (1 is a duplicate) and a clipping of E.O. Chalfant's obituary. SHIPS IN A BOX! Packaged with Care.
