A GUIDE FOR THE BEDEVILLED
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1944. Hard Cover. near Very Good binding. Item #6667
12mo. , 276 pp. First edition, early printing. Signed and inscribed by Hecht. In publisher's mustard cloth, lacking the dust jacket. Binding is a bit grubby and the spine is sunned; given the wartime paper shortages, that the contents are evenly toned throughout isn't surprising; but a solid copy with an uncommon inscription--signed and inscribed by Hecht to D. H. Lawrence scholar, Keith Cushman on the front free endpaper. A long repudiation of anti-Semitism by one of the greatest American screenwriters.
