About this Item

Second in a series, following the author's "Ancient Rhetoric." Copyright page states "Set up and printed / Published February, 1928." No later dates. The author was "Professor of Rhetoric in Columbia University." Covers St. Augustine, the Carolingians, etc. Square and tight, the book will close its boards as well as its text block, but two bottom corners have been bumped, and the gilt spine titles are considerably faded. This is the Arnold Shaw copy, with Mr Shaw's distinctive "steel mill" bookplate attached to front pastedown. A former public relations man for Elvis Presley, Arnold Shaw wrote "The Rock Revolution," "The Rockin' '50s," "Honkers and Shouters: The Rhythm-and Blues Years," "Black Popular Music in America," "The Jazz Age: Popular Music in the 1920s," etc. A copy of Arnold Shaw's 2008 obituary laid in. 321 pp. including indices. NOTE: Cat's Curiosities sells used books. Our Online inventory is stored in a dry, temperature-controlled, tobacco-free warehouse. We attempt to identify books which have a damp or musty smell, when we sell them at all. Otherwise, buyers should assume used books have been shelved inside human habitations and have been exposed over the years to some combination of wood smoke, tobacco smoke, leather dressing, or other aromatic agents unknown to us. We offer no certificates of hypoallergenic purity. Those wishing to make symbolic gestures of support for the prohibition of tobacco and other medicinal plant extracts by hopping about and shrieking that used books "reek of tobacco" should apply elsewhere.
