SIGNED on the front endpaper by Noyes, Hassam, Taft, and sculptor Paul Manship, whose medallion of "Victory" is embossed on the front cover. An uncommon title, scarce to find signed by all four contributors. Pages unopened; soiling to covers. Very Good [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
