Seventh in the series. Bound in brown cloth with picture of Bomba on the front. The jacket shows Bomba with a with a bow being observed by a leopard in the bush background. The book lists to itself on the verso of the title page and the jacket lists to Number 8. The rear panel of the jacket advertises 14 titles in the The Baseball Joe series. Bomba books are often mistakenly described as first editions since Cupples and Leon apparently never changed the titles page once the book had been printed but the jacket allows more precise dating and indicates this copy from circa 1929 and it may be a first printing. Mattson & Davis (MAD # 09000) show this jacket as the first format and the book as the first as well. Very light wear to book, pages browning, owner's pencilled name in appropriate place. Jacket worn with a number of chips and tears, some losses on the spine
