        Jayhawker A Play in Three Acts [Signed by Sinclair Lewis]

      Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good +, Dust Jacket Condition: very good, First editionA Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed with some tiny fraying, slight amount of fading to the board edges and spine head as is usual for this title), in a Very Good dust jacket (chip to the spine head with an associated tear, small chips to the spine tail and ends of the flap folds, age toning to the edges of the flaps and rear panel, corner-clipped by the Publisher but not price-clipped and showing the price at $2.00 -- all unsurprising for this jacket which often is found worn), SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS on the title page; Sinclair Lewis' debut (and only) published Play, a joint effort by Sinclair Lewis and by Lloyd Lewis, the then drama critic for the Chicago Daily News and a Civil War history specialist. Sinclair Lewis won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Literature for "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humour, new types of characters", making him the first author from the United States to win the Prize. Declared by Sinclair Lewis Bibliographer Stephen Pastore to be "...perhaps the scarcest title in the post-1930 Lewis lexicon", the first edition of Jayhawker consisted of a mere 1,076 copies. The Play is set during the Kansas Missouri border wars which took place off and on from about 1855 to 1864. During this period, militant bands of nominal free-staters who opposed Slavery but who were willing to pillage, rob, and kill for other reasons as well, adopted the term to describe themselves. With relatively few copies of the first edition having been produced and with many of them no doubt having been claimed by time, first edition copies are rather scarce to the market.Although signed copies of Sinclair Lewis works generally are not terribly scarce, signed copies of "Jayhawker" are rare. In addition to having been signed, this copy bears a notable Provenance, having come from the Estate of decorated Naval Officer and Actor Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the book's front pastedown. A Very Good+ copy of what itself is a rather uncommon book, and one hardly ever found signed, SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS. RARE.
