About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Signature and Inscription.

Description:

Witty and erudite "New York Herald Tribune" columnist ("The Conning Tower") known as "F.P.A." was a member of the legendary Algonquin Round Table of the '20s and '30s; he went on to further fame on "Information Please" on radio. "Dear Mary: / Love to you / from / Frank" pencilled large and bold in F.P.A.'s unusual script on a 6¼" X 4" slip, n.p. [Chicago, IL], n.y. [1940]. Very good. Couple of light vertical folds. Accompanied by a heavy stock 8½" X 11" facsimile of Gene Markey's delightful caricature of F.P.A. from his 1923 book "Literary Lights: A Book of Caricatures". Also present is an ALS dated 31 July 1940 from a friend of "Mary" the recipient (Mary B. Day, the Museum of Science and Industry's long-time librarian) named Evelyn transmitting this F.P.A. signature (and noting, "I was with him on a drive which included Douglas School and Armour Institute and parts of the old neighborhood, in which he takes a tremendous interest.") and a clipped January 1948 "Atlantic Monthly" F.P.A. article titled "Literary Memories" in which he discusses these Chicago sites.
