The bookseller Peter Stern graciously sent me a scan of the dust jacket of S. J. Perelman's _Dawn Ginsbergh's Revenge_ (1929).  On the jacket appears the following:

_In an open letter to S. J. Perelman, GROUCHO MARX says:_
"From the moment I picked up your book until I put it down, I was convulsed with laughter.  Some day I intend reading it."
