About this Item

First US edition, first printing. A very good plus book (some offsetting to the endpages, a bit of rubbing to the cloth on part of the lower edge) in near fine dustjacket with very light wear, but unfaded and unclipped. On the rear flap is written in ink "p.164", but the significance of this eludes me as there seems (at least to me) to be nothing unusual on that page. An inscribed presentation copy (in the year of publication) from Bennett Cerf to the owner of the book, Walter Jacobs, whose amusing and unusual bookplate is fastened to the front pastedown, mostly hidden beneath the flap. The author's penmanship is unusual, but I think (hope) I have managed to make out the inscription: "For / Walter Jacobs / and his luscious, long / suffering wife Lili. / With love / Bennett / Oct. 16, 1956". (The word I am least sure of it "Lili"). Bookseller Inventory # HU83
