About This Item

New York: George H. Doran Company, 1915. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. New York: George H. Doran Company, 1915. First Edition, second-state binding. VG in VG- jacket. Exceptionally rare in dustjacket. DJ has a single shallow chip off the spine crown cutting off about 1/3 of the word Tennis. Period bookseller price tag ($2.50) on the spine. Minor soiling, and a few closed tears. These defects noted, the jacket is still attractive in the mylar sleeve. The book itself has a neat POS on the title page, otherwise completely free of markings, pages very clean and bright, no foxing. Endpapers foxing and some spotting to top edge and front paper edge, bottom edge clean. Cloth boards have virtually no wear and are bright and clean, sharp cloth corners. Preface by Richard Norris Williams. Illustrated from photographs. 9x6, gilt-lettered green cloth. Ghost-written by Sinclair Lewis when he was a struggling writer, about 5 years before Main Street was published. Lewis was working for George Doran at the time.
