New York: George H. Doran Company. Good. (c.1927). 2nd printing ("B"). Hardcover. (no dust jacket) [moderately worn but sound copy, bottom corners bumped, tiny tear in cloth at top of spine]. 28 essays on divers topics, such as: "In a Tunisian Oasis"; "Tibet"; "Modern Folk Poetry"; "Edward Lear"; "Sir Christopher Wren"; "The Importance of Being Nordic"; "Chaucer"; "Popular Music" (he liked ); and "Sincerity in Art." My personal favorite (not that I'm going to claim to have read them all) is "Where Are the Movies Moving?", in which he sings the praises of his "favorite dramatic hero, Felix the Cat," a careful study of whom, he asserts, "would teach the Germans some valuable lessons." And probably the rest of us, too. . (Inventory #: 23615)
Unusual, Uncommon and Obscure Books in many (but not all) fields, with particular interest in American Culture (Popular and Unpopular), Art, Literature, Life and People from the 1920s through the 1960s.
