3 Maule, Tex (pseudonym of Hamilton Prieleaux Bee Maule) THE CORNER BACK, A Novel of Professional Football
New York David McKay Company 1967 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Octavo -- from 7.75" to 9.75" Tall 
Fiction. Maule's sixth novel of professional football. In this one, a fifth-year corner back with the Los Angeles Rams (they may be the St. Louis Rams now, but in a just universe they'd still be in L.A.) becomes suspicious of "a menace that threatens not only himself and his teammates but the whole National Football League. Who is this friendly neighbor, so eager to supply steaks for cook-outs, so solicitous about the health and prospects of the team?" (I'm thinking we've got a bet or two going, here). Pale green cloth w/black spine lettering, 200 pages. Gently bumped/lightly worn corners/spine ends, lightly soiled edges, in moderately edgeworn dust jacket w/light chipping to corners/spine ends, short tears to spine ends. Jacket in protective mylar sleeve. Almost all available copies of this title are either missing a jacket or have had the snot hammered out of them through the cruel ministrations of librarians, but this copy has made it through the years still wearing its jacket and managing to escape the stamps and numbers and mishandling of the bibliobarbarians. Amazingly, it doesn't even have a previous owner's name, address, date, note, scribble, or doodle.
