Blue cloth lettered in gilt. Title page printed in red & black. Label on inner front cover, light shelf wear to base of spine, a strong very good copy in a slightly worn dust jacket, which has a short split along the front hinge and a tear partway into the spine, and a bit of wear to the base of the spine. The Author's League statement on the front of the jacket indicates that it was published "For the Benefit of the Authors' League Fund for Needy Authors." Personal stories from 125 authors including Zane Grey, Mary Austin, Channing Pollock, William MacLeod Raine, Arthur Train, Carolyn Wells, Kate Douglas Wiggin, Mary E. Wilkins, Clement Wood, George Barr McCutcheon, Sinclair Lewis, Robert W. Chambers, Rex Beach, and many others. Quite a decent copy.
