Book Description New York Graphic Society, Greenwich, Connecticut, U.S.A., 1960. Hard Cover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Poor. Robert Osborn (illustrator). First Edition. White treated covers. Gift inscription on the fep. Volume has light edgewear. Jacket is in two pieces at the front spine fold, (pressure tear) worn, torn, chipped and rubbed. On the inside, there are a few taped repairs which didn't help much. Now in clear cover. A satire in pictures and words on the decline of greatness and rise of mediocrity in America. "With scorching satire Osborn attacks the evil at its roots, the infantilism, the dishonesty, the shameless pandering to the lowest taste, the escapism, the anything-for-a-fast-buck philosophy as well as the mushy softness of a society that permits these ugly symptoms of decay to pass almost unnoticed." From Wikipedia: "Robert Chesley Osborn (1904-1994) was an American satiric cartoonist, illustrator and author. According to Osborn's New York Times obituary, over his 50 year career, Osborn's sardonic and often savage drawings in books and magazines have arrested readers with their images of bloated power, violence and death. At the same time, he could be wittily ironic about society's pretensions, spoofing subjects like psychiatry, suburbanites and social climbing.". Seller Inventory # JB14243-OS
