Steinberg, Saul.  All in line. New York: Duell, Sloan & Pearce, (1945). Folio (30.94 cm, 12.18"). [124] pp.; illus.
$100.00

Steinberg's first book: keenly observed, distinctively rendered vignettes from the artist known for his New Yorker cartoons — with the volume's endpapers and dust jacket providing their own Steinberg'ian delights.
        This is the stated "second large printing" of the first edition, and includes sections on WWII, China, India, North Africa, and Italy that showcase work Steinberg produced during his time in the Army. That wartime humor does not avoid, and often gleefully plays with, stereotypical imagery that now would be eschewed.

Publisher's tan cloth, in original color-printed dust jacket spine extremities and lower outer corners rubbed; jacket with spine and edges chipped, back panel with short tear from upper edge. Pages faintly age-toned; one leaf with small hole not touching images. => A solid copy of this engaging, although also “period,” collection from one of the great 20th-century illustrators.  (41565)   Please RESHELVE This.
