This 'better little book' is copyrighted 1939 by Stephen Slesinger. It is a Doctor Doom story titled 'Foreign Spies, Doctor Doom and the Ghost Submarine, an International Spy Story'. This was authored by Conrad Vane and has illustrations by A. McWilliams. The covers of this copy are covered with contact paper. The pages are yellowed and the front cover is starting to come loose from the binding. Overall this book is in decent condition for an 80 plus year old child's book. It would be a nice addition to a children's book or big little book collection.
