About This Item

New York: A.S. Barnes, 1957. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. First edition. Gift inscription dated 1959, boards a bit soiled, a very good only copy in a price-clipped, good or better dustwrapper with small chips and tears. Engaging reminiscences of the game by the creator of Studs Lonigan. This copy is Inscribed at a later date to Joe DiMaggio: "To Joe DiMaggio with kind regards. James T. Farrell. Aug. 17, 1978 N.Y." DiMaggio, who is mentioned in the text, may have been forced to seek out a used copy to have it signed, and this copy has an old bookseller's price in it. Several of the books from DiMaggio's library had receipts from his hometown used bookstore, Moe's Books, in San Francisco. With a letter of provenance signed by DiMaggio's two granddaughters. *Shannon 100*.
