About This Item

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1930. First Edition. A play based on Lardner's short story "Some Like Them Cold," centered around a songwriter who moves from Schenctady to New York City in hopes of making a name for himself in Tin Pan Alley, and his struggles with love. The original Broadway production ran for 273 performances, and gave way to two film adaptations: A. Edward Sutherland's June Moon (1931), and George Archainbaud's 1937 musical comedy Blonde Trouble. Bruccoli & Layman A24.1. First Printing. Octavo (19.75cm); pale pink linen, with printed title label mounted at upper spine; dustjacket; xii,187,[1]pp. Trivial dust-soil to upper edge of textblock, else a fresh, Fine copy. Dustjacket is unclipped ($2.00), with trivial wear to heel, and a single, tiny tear at upper edge of rear panel; very Near Fine, with the spine notably unfaded - the anomalous copy.
