Little, Richard Henry, The Line Book, Chicago, Chicago Tribune, 1929, first edition, 8vo (9" x 4.125"), SB, saddle-stapled black, red & purple illus wraps, VG / none. Edgeworn, age-darkened.

64 pp. A compilation of poems, jokes, songs, etc. from the beloved Chicago Tribune columnist. Beautiful cover by Boris Artzybasheff.

The first Linebook was published in 1924 and since then it has become a yearly event, looked forward to by a steadily increasing number of people whose morning would not be complete without reading the famous Richard Henry Little’s ‘A Line o’ Type or Two’ in the Chicago Tribune. The gay and impish tone of his column, made up of unregenerate laughter at the foibles of men, acid thrust at their follies, philosophy masked in humor, and the steady reminder that few things are to be taken too seriously, pervades these small anthologies. And while only a small portion of the paragraphs, poems, and stories written or published by R.H.L. during the year can be included in any year’s book, an effort is always made to put as many as possible of the most popular ones into this permanent form.    [Book ID # 1754]
