Why We Love This

Lanterns Lances by James Thurber. NY: Harper and Brothers, 1961. First printing. Hardcover with dust jacket. Well-preserved copy of this rare collection of pieces ranging from 1955 to 1961, most of which appeared in The New Yorker, with many of the author's drawings. Fables, stories and diatribes about language, from the pen of one of the funniest writers of his generation.
