Liverpool Jarge
Square Rigger Co. 1922 - From the preface by Philip Hale: "Some years ago the editor of the 'As the World Wags' column of the Boston Herald received stories of strange adventures in the West Indies and Mexico, stories that might have been told by a beachcomber, who, knowing the classics and having sat at rich men's feasts, had turned tramp; whose sense of humor was so developed that he enjoyed his vagabond life. The descriptive power of the unknown writer was uncommonly graphic ~ It was high time that the memory of him should be preserved n a less perishable form that the columns of a daily newspaper." Signed inside front covers by Witherspoon (pseudonym) with R.I.P note and presented by Nutter (Bill) to Tomoso - "Tomaso, as tidy a cove as ever was, from Bill April 19-38." Book in excellent condition with two Light stains to the dust jacket and covers and a small closed tear to the front of the jacket. Protected in mylar. In excellent condition given its age. Size: 5½" - 7½" First printing. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
