The Early Worm

New York: Henry Holt, 1927

8vo, pp. 263. Original green boards, lettered in yellow to front panel and spine. Spine darkened and a little worn and bumped at ends. A very good copy, lacking the dustwrapper.

First edition, INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR: 'To Dicky, for not having been absent or tardy once during 1930, Bob Benchley. Oct 21 1930.' With a very shaky ?ownership signature, possibly of the recipient, whose forename was Richard but whose surname is illegible.
A collection of essays from the humorist, columnist, actor, and pre-eminent New Yorker contributor of his day.
Very scarce inscribed.

Keywords: Robert BENCHLEY"
