Book Description Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1966. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good+ dj. Illustrated by Leslie Saalburg (illustrator). First Edition. [nice-looking book, just a trace of wear to bottom edge; jacket has a couple of small closed tears along the top edge and some minor dog-earing along the top edge of the rear panel, all ameliorated by a previous owner's internal tape-repair along the top edge (externally invisible, no yellowing or bleed-through); there is also a short diagonal crease at the bottom right corner of the front panel]. (pen and ink drawings) SIGNED by the author, fhe founding editor-publisher of Esquire, on the ffep. Not exactly a memoir, but rather a series of essays (or musings) "about his personal preferences in things, places, and people as a long-time connoisseur, fancier, aficionado, gourmet, and collector."
