5 Marquis, Don The Lives and Times of Archy & Methitabel
Doubleday 1950 Hardcover Good+ in Fair dust jacket Illustrated by Herriman, George 
This edition has an introduction by E. B. White, a high recommendation for this volume of poetry and illustrations. The book itself is in really good shape -- corners unbumped and the red cover embossing and spine text is bright. The top of the front cover of the spine shows slight fraying and there are a couple of miniscule nicks to the top corner of the cover. The DJ is worn and is tattered around the spine and corners and worn along spine. Of course, we have covered the DJ in mylar as usual and it is now protected. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 477 pages
