Brown cloth / patterned boards. From the Dust Jacket: "A lively, spontaneous re-creation of the childhood of a famous editor and writer at the turn of the century - an unforgettable picture of a vanished New York... This is the story of a childhood that no longer happens, in a New York that has vanished, in a time that few now remember. The Armstrong family is large, lively, busy, amusing, spontaneous, creative. Half are artists and writers, half decidedly are not. All are distinctive individuals, and here they come alive... in themselves and in their effect on Ham, the youngest of seven children. On the outside, the brick and white-trim house on Tenth Street seemed startlingly 'different' to the brownstone dwellers in New York at the turn of the century. Inside it was novel too. Ham's father, the friend of McKim, White, Saint-Gaudens and La Farge, banned black walnut, varnished oak, oriental nooks and green rep, and set a trend toward lightness and delicacy. More important for Ham, it was a house on many levels, with many stairs to rush up and down, excellent for every sort of diversion." Keywords: New York City history. First Printing of the First Edition. Hardcover. Fine condition/Fine dust jacket. 8vo. 151pp.
