Editorial: Houghton Mifflin, Boston
Año de publicación: 1960
Condición del libro: Very Good
Condición de la sobrecubierta: VG+
Edición: First Edition (Revised).
First (revised) edition. Inscribed to Robert and Elodie Osborn on the ffe: "Elodie + Bob Osborn/ from Walker Evans / in hopes of getting an inscribed copy of 'The Vulgarians'/ Well, in affection and admiration/ anyway." Artist Robert Osborn, best known for his satirical illustrations, knew Evans from his contract work for Fortune magazine, where Evans was as an editor in the early 60s. The book to which Evans refers, The Vulgarians, a collection of Osborn drawings satirizing contemporary social mores, was published in 1960, the same year as the revised edition of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. Thus, it is likely that Evans signed this copy in the year of publication. Osborn's wife, Elodie, was on the staff of MOMA in its early years and founded the traveling exhibition program there in the 1940s. Near fine in better than very good dustjacket.

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
