Title: Black Gold.
Description: Chicago, Rand McNally. 1958. Hard Cover with dust jacket. Ill.: Wesley Dennis. 173 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H). Colour pictorial endpapers, b&w illustrations. "The glorious turf record of Black Gold could almost have been foretold from three things: the character of U-see-it, his diminutive mother who was the pride of the Osage Indians; the single-purposed and inscrutable mind of her owner, Al Hoots; and the intensity of the Irish boy, Jaydee Mooney, who had no peace until he and he alone could ride Black Gold to glory. The story begins with a prophecy and ends with a soaring moment in the annals of the turf." Very light browning to edges of textblock, minor edge wear, a few tiny dints to bottom edge of boards, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price clipped, has light to moderate edge wear - heavy on rear flap-fold, tiny/small chips at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning on spine and flap-folds/top edge, light creases on spine, a few tiny marks and tiny hole on front panel. Very Good/Good-.
