A tight and nice first edition of this (to cite front jacket panel) "anatomy of a celebrity murder trial" -- that of New Jersey physician Carl Coppolino, defended by famed defense attorney F. Lee Bailey. Interesting autograph addition: Front flyleaf bears a fine, archival decorative-edged bookplate boldly signed by Bailey in black ballpoint.
