Pub Date: 1938 (First edition)

Binding: Hardcover

Condition: Good.  Binding tight.  No tears, bends or folds.  Previous owner’s bookplate on front pastedown.  Without dust jacket.  A couple of spots on front cover (age? wear?).  Light wear to head and foot of spine.

Notes: Burro Alley is a little tiny lane between San Francisco Street and Palace Ave. in Santa Fe.  It was named for the woodcutters who would “park” their burros in the alley as a place to sell their wood.  Local legend says it was also home to the gambling and red light district (probably thanks to this book) but my money is on the burro legend.  For lack of imagination, think of this as “Tortilla Flat” set in Santa Fe.
