Angels on Toast
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1940 - Scarce book, First Edition, with "A" on copyright page, in very presentable original dustjacket. Clean beige cloth boards with purple lettering and small illustration on cover, purple lettering on spine. Hint of soiling to very bottom of spine edge (1/8"), no bumping or wear. Binding is tight & square, no cracking. Pages and edges are clean, with browning to gutters of endpapers only, small brown tape mark on front and rear fixed endpaper, no previous owner names or bookplates. 273 pgs. Dustjacket is bright, unfaded, not price clipped (2.50 on front inside flap), two tiny corner chips, 1/4" browning along top and bottom jacket edges from old style mylar cover. Author's photo on rear panel. Enclosed in new archival quality mylar cover. Very scarce novel by an outstanding American writer, this her humorous and well-written novel about an American businessman--at his best and his worst, at work and at play. The New York Times called Dawn Powell "wittier than Dorothy Parker, able to dissect the rich better than F. Scott Fitzgerald, more plaintive than Willa Cather."
