I hope the readers will find as much originality and enjoyable buffoonery in it as I did. I recommend it equally to contract players, reformed contractors and bridge celibates." This copy inscribed and signed in pencil at front free endpaper by the illustrator, Vincentini, who was responsible for a number of fantastic dustjackets from the period.

Item Description: Book Condition: Fine. Original art. Pen, ink, and wash. Image matted to approximately 5.5" x 8.5". Framed. Signed lower right: "John Held, Jr." A lonely dog peers longingly through saloon doors for his owner. An amusing and touching little drawing. Few artists define an age as thoroughly as John Held, Jr. defined the "Jazz Age" of the 1920s. He was one of the most successful commercial artists of his era, and was particularly known for his anemic Jazz Age flappers and their raccoon-coated male companions. He illustrated magazines, books and dustjackets in this manner, including those for F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tales of the Jazz Age and The Vegetable. He was also known for his illustrations of dogs, some published in John Held, Jr.'s Dog Tales, and his satiric "old-timey" hand-drawn illustrations meant to look like woodcuts. Less known are his hauntingly beautiful watercolors of cityscapes. Bookseller Inventory # 81219
