About this Item

The first seven issues folded twice with original print wrap-around band which noted the contributors to that issue. Very fine without wear, fading or chipping. Publication was suspended with the April/May, 1935 issue. These first seven issues were edited by George Jean Nathan, Ernest Boyd, James Branch Cabell, and Eugene O'Neill. "Like 'Contempo' and 'The Chicago Literary Times,' 'The American Spectator' is a 'literary newspaper,' offering comment on a wide variety of subjects interesting to the student of modern letters. Unlike its Chicago brothers, its point of view is series, and iats purpose to evaluate our age without' commercial or advertising' prejudice. Theodore Dreiser and Eugene O'Neill appear in the role of critics. The prose of Sherwood Anderson is also in evidence. The criticism of Joseph Wood Krutch, Ernest Boyd, and Robert Linn also appears. There are frequent satirical references to certain writers and movements.Short stories are contributed by Jerome Weidman and Sherwood Anderson." Hoffman, Allen and Ulrich, The Little Magazine, p. 304. Bookseller Inventory # 17856
