Descripción

136 p. This is the story of a man and his famous lemon-colored dog, and incidentally of his life, family, and career in Chicago. The author was born in Cincinnati but eventually landed in the Chicago area where he became a partner in [?] Harris Bank, which owed it beginnings to a an investment firm founded in 1882 in Chicago and which now is part of BMO Harris. He led a pleasant life in the city and on the North Shore of Lake Michigan, with hunting and fishing trips to Indiana, Missouri, and elsewhere. Sam, the dog, was legendary among his friends and colleagues-a wily and brave dog determined to overcome the implications of being "yellow." There is, for instance, a photo of Sam standing proudly on a high branch of a tree. The frontispiece is a wonderful color portrait of him. Other photos are of family members, with the dog and other dogs, of course. Octavo (8" x 5 1/2"), deep blue cloth hardcover with gilt title, near fine with light bumps at ; no dust jacket (protected in an acid-free cover); SIGNED "To U [?] S. Swartz from Albert W. Harris 1/18/1940". N° de ref. de la librería 2067AH

Books by mail or appointment; call 1-847-869-1384. BOOKLADY USED AND RARE BOOKS is small but selective with unusual and hard-to-find books. We concentrate on nonfiction, particularly history, and in books of a local or regional nature--city, county, state histories, for instance, and histories of movements, institutions, churches, organizations, and people particular to those places. We have family histories, historical or regional fiction, children's books, cook books, and interesting books on the arts, antiques, and useful crafts. We have a small selection of fiction, many biographies and autobiographies, some prints and posters, drawers full of ephemera on the above topics.
