About This Item

No. 133 of privately printed First Edition of 1250 numbered copies of Waldo Frank's fictional portrait of a New York neighborhood, in a series of short-stories on the characters of a City Block which epitomize Frank's aesthetic of transcendental "oneness" which in the tradition of Winesberg, Ohio expresses the loneliness of its inhabitants. Linen-backed boards, stamped in black on spine and front cover; 320pp. Some soiling to linen spine, bumping to corners. No DJ issued. An internally fine copy of a neglected work.
