Descripción

Blindstamped blue cloth, gilt lettering on front cover and spine, 12mo, 216 pp. Humorous account of this authors' travels. G.L. "Golightly" Morrill (1857-1928) received a degree in theology from the University of Chicago. He became a minister but gained national attention by breaking away from all established churches and founded an unorthodox "People's Church" in Minneapolis. He traveled widely and was the author of dozens of books. In his obituary in the Los Angeles Times, it is noted, "Probably the most unique funeral service ever conducted was held here today when the voice of Rev. G.L. "Golightly" Morrill was heard preaching his own funeral service. The words were heard over the body of the noted writer and world traveler in a local funeral parlor this morning. They issued from a phonograph which was playing a record dictated by Morrill himself months ago in preparation for his final rites. After the sermon another record was placed on the machine and Morrill's voice was heard singing a religious song." He picked up the nickname "Golightly" from an an associate who told him the Baptist Church officials were getting uneasy about his church services, where he told jokes, had musicians, drummers, slide projected images, and Hula Dancers. The associate told him he had better "go lightly" in the future. GL did not change his methods, but did adopt "Golightly" as his pen-name. Illustrated with sketches and photos by Lowell L. Morrill. Some penciled bracketing of text, binding tight. Spine lightly sunned, faint soiling rear cover. Book condition VG-. Binding: Hardback. N° de ref. de la librería EA5649
