Farmington, Inscribed by Darrow, with Three Additional Photos, 1925.

Inscribed Copy of Darrow's Farmington With Three Additional Photos Darrow, Clarence [1857-1938]. Farmington. New York: Boni and Liveright, 1925. vi, [7]-255 pp. Original quarter cloth over patterned paper boards, gilt title and author name to front board and spine, top-edge rouged, fore and bottom edges deckled. Light rubbing to boards and extremities, front hinge cracked (before title page), a few slight cracks to text block, internally clean. Darrow's inscription "Inscribed to Gladys E. Doing/ With the regards of/ Clarence Darrow/ Chicago Oct. 13th 1926" to front free endpaper along with a Washington, DC address in a different hand, photographs of Darrow tipped onto front pastedown and rear free endpaper, additional photograph laid in. $1,750. * First published in 1904, Farmington is a fictionalized account of the author's youth in Ohio. Though it went through seven editions, it was never a critical or commercial success. This pained Darrow because he thought it was his finest book. A portrait of Darrow standing in a yard with his hat in his hand is tipped onto the front pastedown and his author photo from the dust jacket onto the rear free endpaper. An additional photo of a man with his arms around a child is laid in; their identities are unclear, though the man bears a strong resemblance to Ammirus Darrow and the photo appears to have been taken in Chicago.
