THE TRAIL OF THE HAWK
New York: Harper, (1915). First Edition. Hardcover. Gilt lettering a little dull. Close to Fine, lacking the very scarce dustwrapper. Second book to appear under Lewis's name. The frontispiece by Norman Rockwell is one of his first illustrations in a book. This copy SIGNED by the author with an exceptional INSCRIPTION on the front free endpaper: "When the trail of those/mild hawks (chicken=/hawks, or sparrow=/hawks, or possibly/mouse=hawks) lead/them to St. Augustine,/Florence Eckert took/them in + found/North Beach for them/+ in thanks they/give (very inexpensive/+ sensible g-ft)/Mrs. and Mr./Sinclair Lewis/Jan 1916." With Florence Eckert's signature and attractive bookplate on the front pastedown. The best inscription, and the only one to incorporate the title, we have seen for this early and comparatively unsuccessful book by Lewis, selling only about 6500 copies.
