  • Merz, Charles.
    THE GREAT AMERICAN BAND WAGON,

    Edition: Hardcover.

    New York: Literary Guild of America, 1928. Hardcover - While this might have been a tongue-in-cheek criticism of the excesses of the "roaring twenties" it is amazing how it still describes the United States -whether it is taken to the road in the chapters "The once open road" and "Caravan" or the fascination with "Bigger and better murders", golf, boxing, movies, junk food ("soda fountains" where "the food is bogus" even though wrapped in strictly sanitary packages) and more. Illustrated with drawings by Howard W. Willard. 263 pp.

    Condition: Very good in dark blue cloth with gilt lettering (spine rubbed, lettering faded), lacking the dust jacket.
