moreHere's a charming vintage copy of the classic book, 'Life With Father' by Clarence Day. This 258-page hardcover was published in 1935 by Alfred A. Knopf and is a stated First Edition. There are many stories here about Day's memories of growing up in the late 1890s, and his relationship with a rather stern, but loving Father. These stories originally appeared in "The New Yorker" and other magazines. They include tales of Day's visit to the The 1933 World's Fair, his visit to his Father's office, his Father hiring the family cook, and even a review of his father's "trousers." The book was adapted in 1939, by Lindsay and Crouse, into the longest running non-musical Broadway play in history, The play, in turn, was made into a popular 1947 movie and later, a television series.
This copy in in good vintage condition, without damage or markings on the text. The former owner wrote her name on the first free end-paper, and dated it, 1935. The book is intact, although the hinge is weakening. The exterior of the book shows some wear along the edges and the spine, where it's lightly sunned. I think the cover has the perfect "look" for a study or a library.
When all is said and done, this is a classic book with character - the perfect gift for the classic father in your life. less
