Class of 1912 Princeton University Ten Year Record
published by the Class of 1912, n.p. 1922 - First Edition. Illustrated with drawings and photographs. 1 vols. 8vo. Eugene Connett, Factory Manager. Eugene V. Connett, III, (1891-1969) established and ran The Derrydale Press throughout its fifteen year existance 1926-1941, producing about 170 of the finest sporting books ever published in America, plus a series of superb sporting prints. At the time this 1912 Class Record was published, however, he was running the family hat factory, and was induced to write an article for the Record entitled "The Factory Manager" reflecting his thoughts (largely favorable) of being in such a job. In 1922 Scribner's published Connett's first book, Wing Shooting and Angling, and three years later he sold the hat business and turned, slowly, to publishing. It is interesting in view of his later career as the doyen of sporting publishers, that for the Record he wrote, "Suppose that I had the choice of occupation to make over again, what would I do? Well, it would be production of some kind; I like to work in a factory, to deal with workmen and see raw material turned into a finished product." It was production, indeed: the near-legendary output of The Derrydale Press. Original orange and black pictorial boards, spine lacking, internally fine Illustrated with drawings and photographs. 1 vols. 8vo [Attributes: First Edition]
