What's His Name

by George Barr McCutcheon

Harrison Fisher Dust Jacket
with Complimentary Matching Bookmark

four black and white illustrations by Harrison Fisher inside

GROSSET & DUNLAP Early Reprint, 1910
Black and white illustrations. The First Edition, which is fairly scarce, has color illustratons.

THE VOLUME: The Reprint Cover is virtually identical to the first edition, except for color. The First Edition is red.

THIS DUSTJACKET: A NEW FACSIMILE copy of the scarce jacket with Harrison Fisher artwork, which sold with the reprint edition, made from a scan of an original in very good condition, printed on one sheet of acid-free paper by an archival inkjet printer (80 yr. inks), and preserved in archival plastic.

The Reprint Dust Jacket is virtually identical to the First Edition.

THE STORY: This story revolves around a beautiful and talented actress (note more rouge than Harrison Fisher usually employed). Her husband has little part in her gay life style, and is referred to simply as “What's His Name” by most of her acquaintances.

Trivia About Reprint Dust Jackets and First Editions:
Very often, with a book of this age, the front illustrations on the dust jackets of the first edition publishers and the reprint publishers were identical. But I have also found many examples where the first edition of a turn-of-the-century dust jacket was very plain—sometimes only plain brown paper—and it was the reprint dust jacket, which bore the lovely interior illustration. (In these cases I have almost invariably chosen to mate the first edition book with the more beautiful reprint dust jacket.) Dust Jackets can be made to fit any sized edition.

Each Dust Jacket costs $12.00 and comes with a complimentary matching bookmark and protective cover. (Price is reduced to $10.00 when three or more djs are ordered.) Details and How to Order
