Boston, Little Brown, (1959). Thurber's memoir of Harold Ross, founder and editor of The New Yorker, with illustrations by the author. Ross founded the magazine in 1925 and served as editor-in-chief until his death in 1951. Thurber began his career with The New Yorker in 1927; he died just two years after this publication. Inscribed by Thurber on the flyleaf, and with a drawing of a dog on the pastedown, signed underneath it "th." Thurber's sight was failing by this time, and his lettering is large and rough; he seldom illustrated his inscriptions by this time, because of his poor eyesight. A good inscription, from late in the artist and writer's life. Spine gilt faded; near fine in a very good dust jacket with modest edge wear and a couple of small stains. [#033198] $750
