New York: The John Day Company. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. (c.1939). First Edition. Hardcover. (price-clipped) [light shelfwear, mild bumping to top corners, one-time owner's signature and date at top of ffep; jacket a little worn along top and bottom edges, one tiny chip at bottom of front panel]. The author, "a father of twenty years experience" offers his "genial but rueful report on a job which he says is a 'combination of adventure, blindman's buff, guerrilla warfare and crossword puzzle.' ... He traces the ordeals and mystifications of a father from that first small cry in the maternity ward down through the myriad knotty problems of table manners, religion, swing music, sex, morality and, in a peculiarly poignant chapter, the expensive vagaries of 'modernistic progressive education.'" A perfect Father's Day gift -- for your son. . (Inventory #: 23033)
