Guys and Dolls (Inscribed)
New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1931. Third printing. Very Good +. Third printing, less than two months after the first. Presentation copy, inscribed on the front end paper: "To George Hussey - Hon Pres. Artists & Writers with the affection of the author and fellow cracker Damon Runyon." With the bookplate on the front paste-down of Dorothy L. Hussey, the recipient's wife. Uncommon signed. A Very Good + copy of the book, spine a bit skewed and a little faded; trivial wear at the extremities. Basis for the 1955 movie of the same name, starring Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando. "In... Guys and Dolls... the reader meets a choice collection of cheap chiselers, chippie chasers, and cheesecake chewers - or to put if differently, the Runyon guys and dolls are Broadway banditti, metropolitan mobsters, Gotham gunmen, and Times Square thugs" (Ellery Queen, Queen's Quorum 84). Very Good +.
