Dutch Treat Club Year Book 1924
69 p., octavo (ca. 8" x 5"), paper over boards. This club was founded in 1905 and continues to this day. Its members are primarily writers, editors, publishers, and others in the media business; artists (painters, illustrators and cartoonists), musicians, architects, and the like, with a scattering of members in other professions. It was a social organization for men (until 1991). George Barry Mallon (photo tipped in), president of the club in 1924, was a founder and editor of a magazine for a financial company. William Morrow was among those on the board of governors. This yearbook features a song with lyrics by Percy Waxman and music by Gene Lockhart, which was sung by John Barnes Wells; a poem by Berton Braley; a humorous look back at the club from the vantage point of 2663 A.D., by Will Irwin; an article about the entertainment committee, by John O'Hara Cosgrave, William Johnston, and Karl Kitchen; cartoons by Herb Roth, Edward A. Wilson, and others; a "nursery rhyme" by Grantland Rice; an illustrated alphabet by Lawton Mackall and Herb Roth; and a Doctor Dolittle story by Hugh Lofting, "The Animals' Children-Book for Burgess," with an illustration. The events, scripts, authors, actors, etc., for the 1924 Dutch Treat Club show also are presented. A directory lists members of the club with their addresses and occupations. Some of them are Rex Beach, Robert C. Benchley, Irwin S. Cobb, Marc Connelly, Charles Dana Gibson, Ring Lardner, Lyman Beecher Stowe, and Albert Payson Terhune. The interior is great, the cover is not attractive-tan with pasted title labels on the front and spine, spotty, with a small waterstain. Bookseller Inventory # 1CSD712
