1946·Garden City NY
by Smith, H. Allen
Garden City NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc.. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. 1946. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . (price-clipped) [minor wear to bottom edge, light browning/spotting to bottom of text block, otherwise a clean and solid book; jacket a little edgeworn, with a couple of short splits at spine corners and a small piece torn away from bottom of rear flap]. (cartoon drawings) Anthology volume, with a new introduction by the author, collecting his first three books -- no doubt issued either to enhance or take advantage of his novel "Rhubarb," which appeared the same year, and of which the rear jacket flap presents a panoply of glowing review blurbs. All three Smith books had been big best-sellers during the war, went through numerous printings, and are thus still readily findable -- but this particular collection, especially in decent condition as jacketed, is relatively scarce. The third book in this compendium, "Lost in the Horse Latititudes," contains the original cartoon drawings by Leo Hershfield; originally published in 1944, it was the first of over a dozen of Smith's books to be illustrated by Hershfield. .
