The Trail of the Hawk: A Comedy of the Seriousness of Life
Harper and Brothers New York (1915) - First Edition in Second Issue dustjacket, ads at rear dustjacket panel differing from those on the first issue wrapper. Norman P. Rockwell dustjacket art. Lewis's extremely elusive third book and only second novel under his own name. Although not a critical or popular success, The Trail of the Hawk provides important insight into Lewis's development as a writer, a craft he would later demonstrate his mastery of in such works as Babbitt, Main Street, and Elmer Gantry. Printed in a relatively small run, this title is perhaps the most difficult to acquire in the publisher's 1915 Norman Rockwell illustrated dustjacket which also constitutes the artist's first contribution to a book. Near Fine with tiny rubbed area to cloth at lower edge of front cover, in a Very Good plus dustjacket, inch closed tear to top edge of front panel, modest foxing to rear panel. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
