Book Description Frederick A. Stokes Company, New York, 1931. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition (SD) Who is 'S. T.? I've spent too much time trying to figure this out. Too much particularly since I haven't succeeded. She (first name very likely Ruth) inscribed and signed the book (Only Signed Copy). I know who she signed it to. His name was George V. Denny Junior. I purchased a number of books that he owned and were inscribed to him (by Dorothy Thompson, by Merryle Stanley Rukeyser, by The Earl of Lytton). I've included at the bottom of this description some details about Mr. Denny's life. A number of the authors no doubt were guests on his long-running radio broadcast 'America's Town Meeting of the Air'. Her last name seems to begin with the letters 'Craust' and then maybe ends with the letters 'er'. That compulsive need to finish something through to the end. I've provided a photograph of the inscribed front free end paper. Moving along, this 85-year-old book is in fantastic shape. And that's likely due to the presence of its dust jacket and to the presence of the dust jacket cover that Mr. Denny or one of his children or grandchildren protected the jacket with. As you can see in the photograph the dust jacket itself looks pretty darn good. Very tiny loss at the front bottom edge adjacent to the spine and perhaps a little bit at the bottom of the spine. The sun faded the red or pink color to tan at the spine and front margins. That's it. It's quite clean and doesn't have much in the way of edge wear. The flaps look very good as well. The book is NOT price-clipped. There are only a few of this title about and None have this dust jacket. The picture of the front cover of the book itself will give you a pretty clear idea of how it looks. It's gotta be the best looking 85-year-old front cover I've ever seen. The spine is right there with it. The back has a mysterious rectangular darkening. Something resting against it that I guess left a shadow. The bottom and top edges and the corners are in excellent shape. The book is very solidly bound, absolutely no issues. And this is an extremely clean book. No soiling, even on the end papers. I'm scrolling through the pages and thinking that Mr. Denny may not have done the same. Of course he was probably given a zillion books to read. The pages look perfect. I didn't see one instance of soiling. (The page edges, by the way, are also spotless). No one has written their name or anything else on any of the book's pages. Such pages don't have any markings, any attachments, any creases, any dogeared corners. And there are 322 of them. S.T. had a few things to say. I'll copy and paste now what I wrote about Mr. Denny in another listing: George V. Denny, Jr. created and moderated the popular radio broadcast called 'America's Town Meeting of the Air'. It ran from 1935 to 1956, mainly on the NBC Blue Network and its successor, ABC Radio. From the show's Wikipedia profile: 'One of radio's first talk shows, it began as a six-week experiment, and NBC itself didn't expect much from it. Broadcast live from New York City's Town Hall, America's Town Meeting of the Air debuted May 30, 1935, and only 18 of NBC's affiliates carried it. The topic for that first show was "Which Way America: Fascism, Communism, Socialism or Democracy? The moderator was George V. Denny, Jr., executive director of the League for Political Education, which produced the program. Denny moderated the program from 1935 to 1952 and had a major role in choosing weekly topics. Denny and the League wanted to create a program that would replicate the Town Meetings that were held in the early days of the United States'. 'On paper, America's Town Meeting looked like a typical panel discussion, with high-profile celebrity guests who were experts on a particular current issue. But while many shows had well-known experts, few had the kind of audience participation that this one did. They cheered or applauded when they liked what a speaker said, and they hissed or booed when they .boo, I've hit the letter limitation. Seller Inventory # 000941
