SELECTED SHORT STORIES is the first appearance of Sinclair Lewis' work.
An ATTRACTIVE copy internally and externally. Scarce in this tight, bright, clean condition. Some wear and tiny nicks to the extremities of the dust jacket (unclipped). Light age-toning to pages as is typical.
Doubleday Doran indicates "First Edition"--usually--by printing it on the copyright page, but sometimes they don't. This copy has no statement of "First Edition," but it also has three pieces of "One dollar Book Club" ephemera, so we have identified it as a "Book Club Edition."
