Item Description: Doubleday Doran, Garden City, 1933. Hardcover. First edition. A small stain on the copyright page (and the facing dedication page), a little smudging to the boards, a near fine copy in a partially price-clipped, very good plus dustwrapper with a small chip at the crown and light edgewear. Nicely Inscribed by the author to his close friend, and occasional co-author, Harry Leon Wilson: "For H.L., who may be reminded of something or somebody, here and there --- N.B.T. Aug. 26, 1933. Kennebunkport." Interestingly, Tarkington signs using his true first initial "N" for his real first name "Newton," which he seldom did -- perhaps he did so as a lighthearted jab at Wilson, who often went by the name "H. Leon Wilson." The novel was bought by MGM as a dramatic vehicle for Lana Turner, but the script turned out to be too lighthearted and Norman Taurog's 1943 film version was instead a musical, showcasing Judy Garland as the small-town girl who impresses Broadway producer Van Heflin. A great association copy: Tarkington and Wilson collaborated on a number of plays early in their careers, several of which were filmed, probably most notably, *The Man From Home* in 1914 (and re-filmed again in 1922), one of the earliest feature films directed by Cecil B. De Mille. Another collaboration was *Cameo Kirby*, filmed first in 1914, but most notably by John Ford in 1923 with John Gilbert, Alan Hale, and Jean Arthur. Wilson, who was married to Rose O'Neill (creator of the Kewpie Doll), wrote several other books that were filmed, including *Merton of the Movies, Ruggles of Red Gap*, and *Bunker Bean*. Over sixty films were made from Tarkington's works, including *The Magnificent Ambersons.* See this book in 3D on our site. Bookseller Inventory # 87556

Item Description: Doubleday, 1921. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition, First Printing. This scarce dustjacket is seldom offered on the market and is quite rare in any condition. The bad news is that this copy has been poorly restored by an unprofessional who didn't know what they were doing. Not only are pieces missing from the majority of the dustjacket, but the remaining original parts of the dustjacket have been glued together on a photo copy of the original dustjacket. The good news is the book is a true first edition. The binding is tight, with light wear to the edges. Most pulitzer collections lack this title so this is a filler copy. Trades and offers welcomed.

Item Description: New York: Doubleday & McClure Co., 1899, 1899. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and decoration to spine and upper board in red and yellow, green top-stain. Spine tanned, lightly rubbed at extremities, front hinge cracked and cover a little loose, faint toning to margins of contents. A very good copy. First edition, first printing of the author's first novel. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "'Well the old Triangle knew the music of our tread, How the peaceful Seminole would tremble in his bed.' Newton Booth Tarkington". This copy was probably inscribed for a friend from the author's Princeton days, as these are the lyrics to the song of the Princeton Triangle Club, an amateur musical comedy troup named after the percussion instrument. "Seminole" here refers to seminary students. As president of the Princeton Dramatic Association, Tarkington wrote a musical parody of Julius Caesar that became the group's first production after its name changed to Triangle Club the following year. He also started a campaign to raise money for the construction of a small building to house the club, which remained in use for 25 years. This copy also has an earlier ownership inscription of a Tarkington family member on the front pastedown. Bookseller Inventory # 63864
