CAIN, James M.
Our Government
Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1930. First edition. About fine in attractive, very good example of the first issue dustwrapper decorated with dollar signs (versus the second issue jacket with a bloated plutocrat on the front panel) with some older professional restoration. Inscribed by the author: "To Charlie, J.M.C." Cain's first book, a collection of "dialogues" or short pieces on politics and government that Cain wrote as reportage for various newspapers, and that display the concise but gritty style that eventually made it into his fiction. Despite some benign neglect of this title by collectors because it leans towards non-fiction, nice copies and especially signed copies, are exceptionally uncommon. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Between the Covers-Rare Books, Inc. ABAA [Gloucester City, NJ, U.S.A.]
