Small 8vo. Stiff glazed pictorial wrappers. xi, 297pp. Frontispiece, illustrations. Near fine. First paperback edition (slightly enlarged) of this literary history. On the front flyleaf, Dardis boldly signs and inscribes in blue fineline: "11/19/91 / For Ralph Gardner / Thanks! / Tom Dardis." Dardis (1926-2001) was a noted American editor at Avon Books and Berkely Publishing (editor-in-chief 1960-72), later an English professor who authored, among other things, biographies of Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd. Ralph Gardner (1924-2005 ) was a noted New York City ad man and even more noted Horatio Alger scholar who had a New York City radio talk show for years -- where he must have interviewed Dardis.
