(WHITE, E.B.) TARKINGTON, Booth
Garden City, Doubleday Page, 1914. E.B. White's copy, signed by White using his full name, "Elwyn B. White." Highly unusual thus. White seldom signed his full name after he reached his 20s, preferring to use "E.B. White," "EBW," or his nickname, "Andy." White was 15 when this book was published, although there is no indication that the signature is from that year. First edition, third state; hinges cracked; staining to boards; a fair copy, lacking the dust jacket. A forgettable copy of the book were it not for White's ownership and his rare signature.
