Item description

BEST IN BOOKS, published by Nelson Doubleday, Inc., copyright 1956 by Nelson Doubleday, Inc. Hard cover, no dust jacket. 5 3/4" x 8 1/2" tall, its 544 pages include two complete novels, a featured cartoon, and excerpts from two books. Binding tight, no inscriptions or markings, cover lightly soiled and pages are lightly tanned. Complete Novels included: BAND OF ANGELS by Robert Penn Warren. -- First published in 1955, Band of Angels is one of the most searing and vivid fictional accounts of the Civil War era ever written. An acclaimed novelist, poet, critic and teacher, and author of dozens of books, Robert Penn Warren was the only writer ever to receive Pulitzer Prizes in both fiction and poetry. THE FIVE FATHERS OF PEPI by Ira Avery -- How small Pepi wandered into an Italian fishing village, acquired five bachelor fathers and--finally--a mother. Author's first novel grew out of a trip he and his wife made to Italy. Cartoon Feature: Hazel Rides Again by Ted Key. Excerpts of the following books: ANIMALS AND OTHER PEOPLE by Louis Bromfield -- Story of the author's Boxers, brought from France and their descendents who lived with a variety of other animals on his Ohio farm and the 'teched' people who are their friends. This book looks at wild and domestic animals, and people that have that inner sense of mystical feeling which makes them one with animals and birds. JOHN GOFFE'S LEGACY by George Woodbury -- It is the purpose of this book to show the human history, or evolution, if that is what it is, of a nondescript but average New England scene through a blend of anecdote, folklore, local color and history. Sequel to the author's John Goffe's Mill.
