    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.

  • GETTING OUT OF THE ROUGH. by Vander Meulen, John M.
    Vander Meulen, John M.
    GETTING OUT OF THE ROUGH.

    Edition: First printing.

    New York: George H. Doran, (1926) dj. Hardcover first edition - A book, which uses the game of golf as an analogy to "the greater game of life." Murdoch commented that it is "difficult to decide whether this is a book of theology with golf overtones, or a golf book with a highly moral tone" - however, the publishers had no such difficulties - the back cover of the quite uncommon dust jacket contains a list of "religious books worth while." 143 pp.

    Condition: Very good in red cloth with black lettering in a fair dust jacket (tape reinforcement to the interior lower edge, some discoloration to the spine of the dj, general rubbing and edgewear, but an intact and quite decent copy of a very hard to find dust jacket.)
