Edición: First Edition.
First edition, first issue of Lewis's third book under his own name with a prescient and revealing ANS tipped-in. 8vo, publishers green cloth, gilt to front and spine, gte, 327p. Copyright page states "Published February 1917/ B-R" No promotional slip for Main Street. Boards slightly soiled, more to spine where gilt is dulled. Corners a tad worn and the slightest threading spine head. Firmly bound, no PONs, inscriptions or bookplates. Tipped onto the lower front pastedown is Lewis's callingcard envelope addressed in his hand to "Mr. Llewellyn Jones, Friday Book Review/ Chicago Evening Post/ Chicago, Ill." On the front of the card, Lewis writes " As you liked Hawk, / I think you'll / like this better./ It's really my/ [continuing to verso] first serious/ novel. Greetings!/ SL" (Lewis is making a reference to his previous book The Trail of the Hawk.) Keen self-awareness, perhaps indulgent self-promotion, yet confirmed by his masterpieces in the decade that followed - Main Street, Babbitt, Dodsworth, Elmer Gantry - and the enduring literary criticism of them.

Descripción de la librería: Johnnycake Books trades in rare and collectible books of most kinds, principally in fields of literature, illustrated, childrens, architecture/design, gardening and photography. We try to offer books that are a little unusual, offbeat and unexpected: most have a strong visual or design appeal. Our descriptions present our inventory as creatively and colorfully as possible, with occassional editorial commentary. We regard condition of our books as critical to our service: most are very good or better, in collectible condition. We are generally conservative in describing a book, even if that means it doesn't sound as good as it actually might be. We welcome your comments directly at email@example.com or visit our website www.johnnycakebooks.com. Best wishes in your book collecting. Dan Dwyer
