Exceptionally tight 'n' bright first trade edition -- with usually-absent jacket not only present but quite nice. An unusually fresh copy. Orcutt (1870-1953) was the noted author of such bibliophilic classics as "The Magic of the Book: More Reminiscences and Adventures of a Bookman" (1930), "From My Library Walls" (1945), "The Kingdom of Books" (1927), "Celebrities Off Parade" (1935) and similar bookish tomes.
