About this Item

First Edition. Paperbound, 6Ó x 7 3/4Ó. A privately printed limited edition seven page booklet issued as a Christmas greeting by Crosby Gaige, one of BroadwayÕs most famous producers, also known as a book collector and small press publisher. With drawings by J.E. Laboureur and typographical design by James Hendrickson. Very slight darkening to the vellum cover, else fine in printed wrappers. GaigeÕs work in the theatre became a serious endeavor for him after he joined forces with actor, playwright, and theatre owner Edgar Selwyn and his brother Arch. Together they produced many hit plays, including Within the Law (1912) and Why Marry? (1917). After a time, he branched out on his own and produced a string of successes, including The Butter & Egg Man (1925), The Enemy (1925), The Shannons of Broadway (1927), Little Accident (1928), and Accent on Youth (1934). Gaige published a respected group of limited edition books in the 1920s and 1930s by such authors as James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Thomas Hardy, Joseph Conrad, etc. He also occasionally directed plays and served as vice president of the Managers Protective Association. Gaige had a reputation as a bon vivant and was widely respected as a gourmet and wine connoisseur, and he wrote several books on cooking, including the New York World's Fair Cook Book, Cocktail Guide and Ladies' Companion, Macaroni Manual and a new edition of Andre Simon's French Cookbook. He was also president of the New York Wine & Food Society. Bookseller Inventory # 17087E
