First Edition and First Photoplay Edition (of sorts, with stills from the Paramount production of An American Tragedy at jacket panels). Translated from the German by Huntley Paterson. "The tale of a political murder and of the murderer's uncalculated fate. He is an ex-army officer, a professional dancer in the gayest cabaret of a post-war European capital. For love of country, and because he is honor bound, he assassinates the revolutionary Prime Minister". Near Fine in Very Good plus dustjacket, small chip at lower spine end.
