This old book The Face is Familiar is also titled The Best Verse of Ogden Nash , Selected by the Author Himself. It has; 281 nimble poems by America’s light-hearted Laureate – 31 of them brand new. The compilation, in part, is taken from “I’m a Stranger Here Myself” and pieces which had been previously published in Harper’s Bazaar, Child Life, The New Yorker and other magazines of the early 1900’s. It has 352 pages plus the table of contents. It has a 1941 copyright by Garden City Publishing. It comes with its original dust jacket which is two sided advertising a series of books on the back side.
It measures about 5 3/4” by 8 1/8” by 1 ¼” thick and is in generally good condition. The inner pages appear to be unmarked and basically clean. There are a few pages that have been creased over the years which I have tried to show in the photos. The spine is tight. The hardbound cover shows minor edge and corner wear and a little discoloration where the dust jacket has not protected it. The dust jacket has creases and tears but it is informative and fun to look at. The previous owners name is written in ink on the inside page and an article from a magazine has been glued to the inside back cover as shown in the photos.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
