I hadn't seen that cover before either. It's strange that this Bantam edition should be so scarce. Following up on this, I checked out the availability of the original Dodd Mead edition of Badge of Evil. No copies at all on ABE. Not a single one. There are two copies of the British first edition done by W. H. Allen, ranging in price from $750 to $950, but why there are no copies of the US edition for sale, I cannot imagine. (WorldCat says there is one in a public library 2 miles from me, among many others.)
