First separate printing, tight and attractive, of this essay by the noted Chicago bookseller and author of "The Seven Stairs." Charming reminiscence of growing up poor in Chicago during the Depression and how his father's bookish tendency was handed down to him. First published in "Prism: The Socioeconomic Magazine of the American Medical Association" (1975) and in the "University of Chicago Magazine" (Winter 1975) -- and likely here printed in Chicago by Stuart Brent Books, Inc., though not so noted. Uncommon.
