About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Miss America: Altiora in the Sierra Nevada

Publisher: Mandrake Press, London

Publication Date: 1930

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good

Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good


Original cloth; illustrated dust jacket. Upper board flaring slightly; spine tips and corners gently rubbed; some off-setting of the dust jacket flaps onto endpapers. Dust jacket lightly dust-soiled; closed tears and some light scuffing along the edges; rear panel sunned; presents nicely in mylar. "Miss America is a picture presented as an autobiography of a modern American woman; and so a picture of all modern women. The satire is gently and caressing as well as keen-edged with a profound psychological insight" (from the dust jacket). Written by a dude, from Australia, who lived in England. Hmm. Good fun to mock aloud, and with a strikingly illustrated dust jacket, showing one man raising his bottle of wine (?) to the Statue of Liberty, while another man (a police offer) raises his billy club.
