They Also Ran: the Story of the Men Who Were Defeated for the Presidency. Signed and with Irving Stone Letter to Mrs Darrow
1944, 1944 - (DARROW, Mrs. Clarence.) Irving STONE. They Also Ran: the Story of the MenWho Were Defeated for the Presidency. New York: Doubleday, Doran, 1944. Autograph presentation copy -- to Mrs. Clarence Darrow -- signed and dated. Pp. xi, [vi], 389. 8vo. Orig. green cloth with titling to spine in bronze. With dust jacket. -- WITH -- TLS of Irving Stone, of same date, to Mrs. Darrow. The publication of Stone's biography of Darrow, Clarence Darrow for theDefense, preceded that of They Also Ran by two years. Stone wrote to the widow of Clarence Darrow in a separately mailed letter which begins with hismentioning the pleasure he has of sending her a copy of the book. The inscription to Mrs. Darrow on the half-title of They Also Ran reads: "For Mrs Clarence Darrow -- great wife, great marital partner, great American woman. With admiration and love, Irving Stone / Encino Calif / April 7, 1944"; while the letter speaks in brief of Stone's several demanding projects at the time, as well as of thoughts he is sure Mrs. Darrow shares on the influenceof Clarence Darrow for the Defense in perpetuating the name of her late husband. The book is very good, having the usual light browning throughout dueto its publication on war-time paper. The book's dustjacket is fair (but unfaded), being rather brittle overall, and having considerable chipping along extremities with some loss of design. The letter is very good, showing evidence of some moderate handling, and is accompanied by its neatly openedenvelope. For both the book and letter. 2,000.00 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
