About this Item

First edition and only edition of E. B. White's first book. Illustrated with photographs of posed manikins. There is no author, publisher or date noted in the book but Katherine Romans Hall, in her bibliography of White's works, notes that White indicated "These Sterling Finney advertisements were written by me. They ran in the magazine in the early years when it was trying to promote its circulation. I posed the dummies--figures I found in Wanamake's department store. The ads, of course, were parodies of a certain kind of 'culture-made-easy' --- Ross was delighted with them and they caused quite a lot of talk." Of course, the implication of each very amusing essay was that reading the New Yorker puts you well on the road to wealth and social success. The book was printed and published by the New Yorker advertising department and sent to agents and customers for goodwill purposes. Issued without dust jacket. The corners of the boards are a little rubbed, otherwise very good or better; and very scarce to rare. Housed in cloth clamshell case. Bookseller Inventory # 52447
