Doran, Doubleday, Page & Co., Charles Scribner's Sons, 1923, First edition. 12mo, 386pp; smooth forest green cloth with printed gold labels front and spine; pictorial gray dust jacket printed in red and black. Front hinge split. Shallow chipping to head of dust jacket's spine; minor chipping at folds. Very good. Illustrated with tipped-in photographs of the featured authors. Written to promote the 1923-24 publishing season and highlight new books by the publishers' most popular writers with chapters on Joseph Conrad, John Galsworthy, Booth Tarkington and Edith Wharton et al. In his chapter on the latter, Overton wonders whether Mrs. Wharton at age 60 may have written her best work. Yet to come from her pen: THE WORLD OVER, OLD NEW YORK, THE BUCCANEERS, A BACKWARD GLANCE.
