CHICAGO. A PORTRAIT
SMITH, Henry Justin; SUYDAM, E. H.
New York The Century Co.1931 1931 (viii)386 pages. First Edition. Illustrated dust jacket. 6 1/4" x 9 1/2". Dark brown cloth-backed to light brown cloth with illustration affixed to front cover; gilt spine titling. Profusely illustrated from drawings by E. H. Suydam, including frontispiece in color and numeerous plates as well drawings over chapter headings. From the jacket blurb, "This book is just what its title suggests: a portrait of modern Chicago. It stresses the city of today rather than of yesterday. It includes properly all the vast "metropolitan area" which is joined to the central city by sentiment if not by government, so that for the first time in any book a reader may obtain a clear and reasonably complete impression of Chicago as a whole." A splendid look back on the Chicago of 1931. This copy has some edgewear at the spine-ends; still Very Good Plus or better, in a well-worn, price-clipped, chipped Good Plus dust jacket, now in a clear mylar protective jacket.
