About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Signed Broadside..

Description:

American poet about whom our best research turns up absolutely nothing. Signed Broadside, "My Chicago: The Wonder City of the World," 7 3/4" X 11¼", n.p., n.y. [pencilled on verso in another hand is "Autographed 8/20/29"]. Very good. Edge chip (1½" X ½") at upper left, affecting brown printed border but not text; several small archivally-closed (on verso) edge tears. Printed entirely in dark brown ink, this 7-stanza poem opens: "Chicago -- Wonder City of the West, / Of all great cities you are best, / and doubly blest with youth and nerve / And great capacity to serve. / We celebrate in 'Thirty-three' / Your natal day, your Century." ("Thirty-Three" being a reference to Chicago's then-upcoming 1933 city centennial.) Across the bottom and going up each side is a superb sketch (also printed in brown ink) of a windswept Chicago and its skyscrapers, with Model T's and other 1929 vintage cars careening across the lower edge. This drawing is signed in the plate by Will K. Higgie, a well-known book illustrator. Near the upper left, in rich brown fountain pen, the poet boldly inscribes and signs: "Cordially yours / The Author / Jamie Heron." A bibliographically-challenged broadside, to be sure, giving no publisher's information whatsoever. And although information on Heron himself is lacking, this is an unusual and exceptionally attractive piece, showing a Babbitt-like pride of place typical of the period. Bookseller Inventory #
