First Edition. Frank Godwin dustjacket art and illustrations. Humorous business themed novel and presumably something of a parody of George Lorimer's classic Letters of a Self-Made Merchant to His Son. In this work "A self-made failure, who has found success in a different field writes to his younger brother who is beginning his business career in New York". Signed by author at front endpaper. Very Good but for having been heavily annotated in black, red and blue pencil by the Depression era owner, in scarce Very Good plus dustjacket, with nicking to edges.
