The Gang. Joseph ANTHONY.

The Gang

Indianapolis/New York: Bobbs-Merrill, [ca.1924]. Jacket blurbs spin The Gang as a sort of urban "Huckleberry Finn" about a group of proto-Dead End Kids, set in the then-Jewish ghetto of East Harlem. What goes unremarked upon in the jacket text is that this is a gang of Jewish kids. The East Harlem community plays an integral role in the story, with considerable interaction between kids in the street gang and various adults. While a number of holdings show up in OCLC for the 1921 Holt edition, the Bobbs-Merrill imprint is unrecorded. HANNA 94. Reprint. Octavo (19.5cm); blue cloth with titles stamped in gilt on spine and front panel; dustjacket; 276pp. Some trivial soil to rear gutter and upper edge of text, with purple rubber stamp of "A. George Volck Incorporated" to pastedowns and endpapers; Near Fine, but for the stamping. Dustjacket is soiled, with numerous short tears, shallow chipping at spine ends and corner tips, and several clear tape mends verso; still a Very Good, substantially complete example.

Price: $250.00
