About this Item

Tan paper covered boards w/brown backstrip, black block w/white lettering and white cherub cover illustration. Lettering on spine rubbed, shelfwear head and heel of spine, edges and corners rubbed, corners to boards. Previous owner stamp front and rear pastedowns, gift inscription front endpaper, text is otherwise clean and bright, no marks. In Joyce Kilmer's scathing 1922 review of this book in the NY Times he ends by saying: "The defects of 'Jack _____; One of Us' would be less depressing if its author did not occasionally show so much real cleverness. He has a remarkable knack of making verses- of this there can be no question. It is something of a task to fill 184 pages with briskly moving stanzas. And in this task Mr. Frankau succeeds. And here there are to be found phrases admirably constructed, passages vividly dramatic or genuinely humorous. Two graphic stanzas tell of the capture of a trout.". Bookseller Inventory # E911BC
