>        Book Description: Horace Liveright, New York, 1929. Hardcover. Second issue. A very good copy in silver cloth-backed embossed covers containing two overlapping hearts, butterflies and other designs, with red spine lettering. There is darkening at the spine and the extremities show light rubbing and tanning of the text block. No dustwrapper in this second issue binding (released the same month as the first), with numerous photos and illustrations. Perelman's first book, of which Groucho Marx said to the author, "From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down I was convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend reading it." An off-broadway stage version appeared in the 1950s. Quite scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 2151
