First Edition. Fabulous contemporary romance and 'Lost Race' novel of a young woman who answers an advertisement for "A blond stenographer, a stenographer with long blond hear". The jacket copy continues: "Her shrewdly mad employer had chosen her to be a goddess in the jungles of Brazil. New York and the jungle, airplanes and manborne hammocks, machine guns and sacrificial knives - all have their place in this dramatic, fast-moving story of contrasts, of mystery and love". Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket, spine modestly faded, small tear and abrasion to mid-front panel.
