About This Item
Harcourt, Brace and Company, New York, 1948. First Edition.
Book Condition: Very good copy of the book with just a touch of fading to the top and bottom of the spine, dust jacket lightly soiled and lightly chipped to the edges. Dust jacket is price clipped. A great first edition copy!
These twenty-three humorous stories and essays and more than one hundred illustrations find James Thurber in absolutely top form. The book concludes with a sampling of articles Thurber wrote for the New Yorker’s “The Talk of the Town,” demonstrating his often overlooked skill as a reporter.
