Gene Tunney Shows The Way

New York: The Butterick Publishing Company, (1929).

Price: $300.00

Softcover. Offprint. [24] pp. Stapled wrappers, in an additional printed paper wrapper. 18.5 cm. With a few small tears to the edges of the outer paper wrapper, else fine. A finely designed offprint, printed in two colors (green and orange). Phelps, a professor of English at Yale University, here presents the life of Gene Tunney as a role model, and "to show the unusual type of article one woman's magazine is publishing. This appeal to the modern, liberal-minded woman of today has made it an outstanding publication. The magazine, of course, is Delineator." Tunney himself must have valued it highly, as he kept it in a leather book cover, presumably made by himself when he was a boy scout, for it bears an etched design on the front cover with the etched inscription, "Gene Tunney, From Monmouth Council Boy Scouts." The cover's spine is darkened and damaged by wear, and it also contains a near fine leather bookmark with gilt tooling. No copies in *OCLC*.
