The Comic Tradition in America: An Anthology of American Humor

Doubleday Anchor, 1959. Mass Market PaperBack. Used - Very Good. Item #245512
ISBN: B00L3O0GQA



Darkened spine & margins. Scar front cover top right. Ink markings last page. Excellent anthology of early American humor (18th & 19th century). The four most modern authors collected, and only represented writers whose lifespan touches the 20th century are: Joel Chandler Harris (1848 - 1908); Mark Twain (1835 - 1910); Henry James (1843 - 1916); Peter Finely Dunne (1867 - 1936). Yet much of what is here continues to tickle the funny bone, despite occasional issues of insensitivity by modern standards of taste. (416 pages plus eight pages of available Anchor & Dolphin titles.)
