The Fate of the Edsel & Other Business Adventures
Inscribed by Author New York, 1963. 8vo, cloth with jacket, 182 pp. Inscribed by Brooks on the front free endpaper: "To the Heaths, with Best Wishes from John Brooks." "Christmas, 1962" written beneath, presumably in the hand of one of the Heaths. An uncommonly nice copy of a very scarce American business title. Brooks' essay on the Edsel is perhaps his best known New Yorker contribution. Besides the two pieces on the Edsel the book also includes the essays "A Proust on Wall Street," "A Corner in Piggly Wiggly," and "The Impacted Philosophers." The book is in near fine condition with minimal normal wear. The jacket is very good with normal rubbing and wear, including a few spots to rear panel and a tiny closed tear at head of spine. Remains quite attractive. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. Bookseller Inventory # SP425
