Association copy; inscribed by Tarkington on behalf of the Silberman brothers (Elkan and Abris) to "Frederick W. Sohumaser". End papers show some browning as does front and rear boards. Pages clean and binding tight. Dust has tears and chips, but now in Brodart protective cover. Tarkington drew considerably from his relationship with the prominent art dealers, Elkan and Abris Silberman, in the writing of this humorous novel of the NY art gallery world. Solid copy in original pictorial. American novelist and dramatist Booth Tarkington (1869 - 1946) achieved renown with the Pulitzer-winning novels. Excellent novel of a lovable art and antique dealer and his theories and observations on collectors and collecting. Long a primer to the more cynical elements of the book trade.
