1st ed., 8vo. Presentation edition, ¼ calf with decorated paper board. Gilt titles on spine with four raised bands. T.E.G. in cloth slipcase.
This profusely illustrated memoir by the two-time Pulitzer Prize cartoonist depicts life as a World War II veteran and includes commentary about the "red scare", Franco and Fascism, Zionism and more. Our understanding is that this is a publisher's presentation copy; the 1948 date on the spine suggests it may have been specially bound after the official publication date of Oct. 31, 1947, which was time to coincide with the book's release for the Book-of-the-Month Club. Regardless, it is a unique copy and in near fine condition with just some light rubbing and several blemishes on the spine. The slipcase is off-white buckram; light wear to edges, some light soiling
