THE BISHOP'S JAEGERS

THE BISHOP'S JAEGERS

Garden City, New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Presentation copy, inscribed and dated in the year of publication by the author on the front flyleaf. "A wickedly gay and irrepressible book about a bishop, young love and a nudist colony." Thorne Smith's rapid-fire dialogue, brilliant sense of the absurd, and literary aplomb put him in the same category as Dorothy Parker, James Thurber, and P.G. Wodehouse. Octavo. Original green cloth binding, with gilt titles on the spine and a blind-stamped illustration on the front panel. The spine is a touch faded; else near fine in an uncommonly fine dust jacket with some very light rubbing. Near fine / Fine. Item #74551

Price: $950.00
