About this Item: [Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran and Company, Inc., 1945.], 1945. Probable reprint edition INSCRIBED, SIGNED, AND DATED BY THE AUTHOR. [10], 309 pages. Hardcover: H 20.5cm x L 14.25cm. Dust jacket rubbed and soiled; strong color fading to spine and front panel; a few shallow chips, nicks, and short tears at edges. Light blue cloth. Pictorial endpapers. Author's seven-line ink inscription boldly written across the half-title page: "to | Glen + | Lewis | Love | Sophie | Tucker | 1/31/62." Strong crease to top corner of pages 3-4 from past fold-down; a few scattered spots of light foxing to interior pages which, overall, remain clean. Binding is firm. A very good+ copy in a good+ dust jacket. Although the book's copyright page is dated 1945, this copy does not have a publisher's imprint on either the title nor copyright pages in contrast to the Library of Congress catalog which specifies a stated Doubleday, Doran and Company "First edition" imprint. Nor is there a price upon the dj's front flap. It seems likely that the book was reprinted (i.e. self-published) by the author likely for sales at her performances. Autobiography of Jewish singer and comedian Sophie Tucker (1884-1966) who was an early star of Ziegfeld Follies and achieved greater fame with her minstrel and Yiddish performances with a strong repertoire of African American influenced music especially ragtime and blues songs.
