"These are times when everyone is concerned about the quality of the literature, or perhaps I should say the quality of the reading matter, chiefly in the form of fiction, now being put before the public.The advent of the so-called pocket book especially has produced a flood of fiction to be had for twenty-five cents or fifty cents a copy at any drugstore or wayside refreshment stand. Its appeal is set forth usually in a picture on the cover, and some of our moralists are more concerned, it seems to me, with the picture on the cover than they are with the printed matter inside." (p. 1).

Coffee cup stains to front cover, a few brown specks to back cover, else very good. Signed without inscription by the author. 30.00
