Donald Ogden Stewart. Father William. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1929.

 

Here’s a book that was on my want list for some time (due to the cover by Peter Arno).  It’s finally been added to the Ink Spill library (though not yet scanned onto the online library). The author, Donald Ogden Stewart, a member of the Algonquin Round Table, was an early contributor to The New Yorker who went on to Hollywood fame. In 1940 he won an Academy Award for best adapted screenplay (The Philadelphia Story). The black & white illustrations were supplied by Stewart and Arno’s New Yorker colleague, Eldon Kelley.
