This is a great book & would be a perfect gift. It is titled "Grandfather's Follies" by James J. Geller and Illustrations are by John Held, Jr. Published by The Macaulay Company, New York, 1934, 219 pages. The best part of this book is the 39 illustrations. They are all copies of the original engravings by the illustrator. The book itself is based on stories he heard from his father and friends of the Boston Theater Company about plays, players, towns and theaters. A great find. The book is red boards with a gold title and motif on the front. The inside is in great condition, the pages are still bright and the paper is thick and rich to touch. There is an inscription "To Uncle Frankie From Eddie & Dot. Merry Xmas 1941" (priced accordingly). James J. Geller is the author of "Famous Songs and Their Stories". There are over 50 plays covered by the author. If you love theater you will enjoy this book. Perfect gift for Fathers Day
